Coming from the field of cultural and social anthropology, I started working at the Institute for Production Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies (LaFT) at the Helmut Schmidt University in 2012 on a project dealing with inter-organizational knowledge management in global production networks. There, I began to develop an interest in digital production technologies and open fabrication laboratories. In my current position as a senior research fellow at LaFT, 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, developing new interfacing opportunities, and promoting committed pluralism.
