I am Junior Professor of European Ethnology & Media Anthropology at the Institute for European Ethnology and the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMAH) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My research is concerned with the transformations of everyday practices and experiences enabled through digital technologies. I am especially interested in the fields of media and digital anthropology, museum and heritage studies, popular culture and game studies, digital methods and ethnographic data analysis, as well as the ethnography of emotions. As project leader and researcher at CARMAH, I apply the approaches of media and digital anthropology to foster our understanding of digital transformations in the field of museums and heritage. I run the DFG-funded project Curating Digital Images: Ethnographic Perspectives on the Affordances of Digital Images in Heritage and Museum Contexts (with Sharon Macdonald and Elke Greifeneder) as well as the transnational research project Challenging Populist Truth-Making in Europe: The Role of Museums in a Digital Post-Truth European Society (with Sharon MacdonaldHaidy Geismar and Roma Sendyka), funded by the VolkswagenStiftung. At the Institute for European Ethnology, I am also member of the institute's council (Institutsrat), head of the IT/Media management team, initiated several smaller projects in this field (see e.g. CEDA), teach courses in the area of media and digital anthropology and coordinate the institute's Media & Digital Anthropology Lab.
