What drives me as a researcher is an interest in processes of inclusion and exclusion within societies, in existing (bio-)power relations shaping space, in sustainability and regional/urban planning. It fascinates me how (young) people live and experience their daily physical and digital environment or in-depth in what ways subconscious responses (e.g. eye-movement) influence our emotions in the everyday life?
With reference to my dissertation project I will focus on the target group of people with disabilities. As I self-identify as a “temporarily-able-bodied-person”, it’s difficult to fully comprehend the disabled perspective. To address this limitation, I aim to conduct research collaboratively and co-productively, promoting the empowerment of individuals with disabilities and amplifying their perspectives.
I completed both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree at the University of Innsbruck with a semester abroad at the University of Bergen (Norway).
