  • Information Studies


Currently, my research interests are focussed on scholarly communication, but knowledge representation, diversity in higher education, and sociology of art are within my scope, too. My PhD Project "How International are Social Sciences & Humanities? Retrieving Literature from East Africa in Europe" approaches to further postcolonial research questions in information studies.


In 2017, I started teaching the online course "Intellectual Property and Digital Information - Law, Politics and Culture" (ABMA18) at LU.

Professional work

Between 2011 and 2015, I was employed at the Vienna University's Library, Open Access Office. My main functions were: research to back up strategic decisions, repository management, in the area of overlap to IT, Open Journal Systems support and advisory services on Open Access publishing.

In 2009 and 2010, I supported the National Heritage Council of Namibia in Windhoek as a volunteer, for half a year. I created a digital database of the protected sites from analogue files.
