My professional and scientific career is fundamentally shaped by the German vocational training system. After a dual vocational training as a mechatronics technician with a college entrance qualification (2010-2013) at the BMW AG in Regensburg, followed my subject-related entrance qualification at the vocational secondary school in Regensburg (2013-2014). Upon that, I studied vocational education at the Technical University of Munich with the subject combination Electrical Engineering / Information Technology and Mechatronics (2014 - 2019). Since September 2019 I have been working as a research associate at the Assistant Professorship of Technical Educations in the project Teach @ TUM at TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology.

Research Interests

  • Networking of specialized science and subject didactics within technical didactics
  • The competence-oriented design of the technical teacher training courses at the Technical University of Munich
