What motivates me
My passion for science and my proximity to medical practice and health care! Disseminating and „translating“ scientific results for patients and experts has always been my passion: In order to support decision making and to improve health care, valid information is needed.
As a research scientist with a clinical background, I had been conducting research on health services for more than eight years, focussing on the utilization of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies and medical devices. My tasks included project management, communication with external investors, designing and carrying out epidemiological studies, statistical programming of large datasets in SAS, developing and editing research manuscripts in order to provide scientifically based (policy) advice and academic teaching. Since 2018, I manage Public Health, health policy and health inequality studies at APOLLON University of Applied Science. I love writing and teaching, so I am currently working as a freelance writer, consultant and teacher.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy and experience abroad (NL, USA), I worked as a physical therapist and teacher for physical therapy for several years. Following a master’s degree in Public Health I started my scientific career at the Socium until 2017, former Centre for Social Policy, department of inequality and social policy: health, long-term care and pensions at the University of Bremen. Since then I have undergone further training in areas including systematic reviews, epidemiological methods, mediation, and lateral leadership.
