I am a doctoral student in the History of Ideas and Science since September 2019 and am funded by the National Research School in History.

My research interests revolve around the history of the social sciences, the processes of knowledge production and transnational history. Theoretically, I am most influenced by the view of science as a social activity found with Bruno Latour and other theorists in Science and Technology Studies.

In short, I want to investigate from a historical perspective how knowledge in the social sciences is produced and trace the transnational/global in the discipline of the social sciences.
