Areas of Expertise:
Global Production Networks, Knowledge Processes in Distributed Value Creation Networks, Open Production and Open Source Hardware Communities
Coming from the field of cultural and social anthropology, I started working at an Institute for Production Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies in a project on inter-organizational knowledge management in global production networks in 2012. Here, I began to develop my interest in digital production technologies and open fabrication laboratories. In my current position as a senior research fellow, I investigate their transformative potential for knowledge and production processes, forms of technological learning, and bottom-up economic development.
Being an AGYA member allows me to exchange and develop ideas across very different academic fields and cultural backgrounds. I believe the ability to integrate multiple perspectives is essential for advancing research and creating viable solutions that have a societal impact. For me, international interdisciplinary research means learning from each other through dialogue, finding shared interfaces and promoting committed pluralism.
