I am passionate about developing innovative concepts and solutions to make cities and regions more livable and environmentally friendly places.

After graduating with a diploma in urban and regional planning from the University of Kassel in 2012, I was able to gain valuable experience at the upper road authority of the state of Hesse (Hessen Mobil) in the field of transport infrastructure funding. There, I held management positions and was significantly involved in more than 300 municipal infrastructure projects, mainly dealing with the promotion of sustainable mobility development.

In parallel to my professional activities, I successfully completed my master's degree in urban and regional planning in 2021 with a focus on stock development and urban management. In the process, my master's thesis was honored as the best of the final year in the field of integrated transportation planning and mobility development.

During my studies, I intensively dealt with mobility development and was awarded the study prize of the Association of German Architects in 2019 for my tool "Puzzle your street space".

From 2021 to mid-2023, I held the position of head of the subject area of transport infrastructure funding for local mobility at Hessen Mobil. In addition, I started working as a research assistant in the field of cycling and local mobility with Prof. Dr. Francke at the University of Kassel in mid-2022. Since June 2023, I have now been devoting myself full-time to the subject area of cycling and local mobility.

In my teaching and research, I focus on the design of pedestrian and bicycle infrastructures and the promotion of sustainable local mobility.
