Personal profile


In my research I want to contribute to fruitful dialogue at the science-society interface. Developments in science and technology have huge impacts on our lives and lifeworlds. Often, these impacts are uncertain and ambiguous, especially in the context of new emerging technologies such as new biotechnology, neurotechnology or digitalization. In contemporary societies we find a variety of different legimitate perspectives from which these impacts are understood and evaluated. This urges us to rethink the science-society relationship. We need more contextual understandings of the interfaces of science and society and new creative methods to initiate and nurture processes of reflection, learning and change. My focus is on the development of new interaction spaces, methods and techniques to shape the conversation about science and technology in society.


The Science Communication track focuses on the training of reflective practitioners that can play the role of intermediaries at the science-society interface. We encourage our students to develop a reflexive understanding of the relationship between science and society. Whether it is in the domain of media and journalism, science centers and museums or dialogue and change facilitation, we teach them to make a difference in shaping communication and connecting worlds.
