I am a research associate from the research group CIMT (citizen involvement in mobility transitions). In my dissertation I am concerned with influences of participation on legitimacy beliefs. I thereby focus on the role of descriptive and substantive representation keeping in mind differing mobility requirements in society.

I studied Social Sciences at the University of Düsseldorf and Sociology and Social Research at the University of Cologne from 2012 until 2019. During my studies I worked at the institute of Social Sciences at the University of Düsseldorf and the GESIS Leibniz Institut for the Social Sciences in Cologne.

During my Master’s Thesis I worked on questions of gender role attitudes, reproductive work and relationship stability. My dissertation deals with social inequality, legitimacy and participatory policy making in urban mobility transitions. I also work on clubs and urban space.
