I studied computer science at the University of Siegen. Already during my time as a student I worked in international research projects. Futhermore, I was a tutor in the project "Computer Science is Female", whose aim is to support women's advancement in computer science. Since 2014, I have been working in the department for High Content Analysis & Information Intensive Instruments (HCA). My focus is in the field of planning and developing software systems for data analysis, data integration and data management. These systems are used in areas such as life science & healthcare as well as in manufacturing and industry 4.0.
