An offspring of American Studies Leipzig, I received both my BA (2012) and MA (2017) in American studies from Leipzig University while also spending time at Ohio University in 2010-11 as a BA Plus Fellow. In 2013-14, I spent a year at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Detroit through the Service for Peace program of Action Reconciliation Service for Peace.

In that year Detroit got a hold of me so that I could not let go off the city even after my return. One result of this is Growing Together Detroit, an alternative summer break program I helped to set up with activists from Action Reconciliation Service for Peace, Repair the World (Detroit), and the Eden Gardens Block Club. Also academically the Motor City has developed into my spatial focal point. Bringing together intellectual history with urban studies, geography and philosophy, I wrote my MA thesis about Detroit philosopher and activist Grace Lee Boggs, and papers about the 1967 Detroit Riot and the Motor City as a spatial asset for symbolic consumerism.
