At TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Technology and Natural Sciences, I am a Senior Researcher in the Data Science & Digital Libraries Research Group. I received a Ph.D. in social and economic psychology from the University of Cologne and a diploma in economics and social sciences, also from the University of Cologne.
As co-spokesperson of the METHODS consortium project and previously of the ForumX consortium project, I am involved in the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). At TIB, I am working on the user perspective of the ORKG to bring together the often heterogeneous data on a research topic in economics, social sciences, and sports sciences. I am affiliated with the Center for Empirical Research in Economics and Behavioral Sciences (CEREB) at the University of Erfurt and involved in the FAIR Digital Objects and Canonical Workflow for Research (CWFR) framework.
My research interests lie in bringing together theories, methods, and data infrastructures in a cross-disciplinary approach. The goal is to open new ways of data-driven (transdisciplinary) research. My other research interests are basic principles of human behavior and their study using experimental data from economics, sociology, political science, psychology, and neuroscience.
Before joining TIB, I was project leader of the DFG-funded x-hub project and developed and established repositories for behavioral economics (x-econ.org) and experimental social sciences (x-science) at both GESIS Leibniz Institute for Social Sciences and at OVGU Magdeburg. As a committee member, I was part of the process of developing the semi-automated ethics review of the German Association for Experimental Economic Research (GfeW). I am a founding member of the GESIS Ethics Committee and co-author of the official analysis report for the Swiss National Research Data Strategy (ORD Strategy) on behalf of swissuniversities.
