After graduating from high school I opted for a dual study program at EDAG Engineering GmbH in Munich. Between 2014 and 2019 I completed an apprenticeship as a technical product designer and a Bachelor of Science degree in automotive engineering. After my studies I was able to gain experience as a test engineer in the area of pedestrian protection.

The idea to become a teacher originated during 2019/2020, when I taught vocational integration classes in mathematics and vocational studies. Based on this positive experience I decided to complete the integrated master’s degree program in vocational education with the subject combination of metal technology and mathematics at TUM. After completing the subsequent traineeship (BSZ Freising, FOS Holzkirchen, FOS/BOS München) in August 2023, I’ve been working as a research assistant at the Professorship of Technical Education at the TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology since September 2023.
