I am a historian interested in East-Central and Eastern European History. My focus lies on the relations and entanglements of these areas with the German lands, especially in the Age of Enlightenment and the ‘Age of Extremes’. Another focus of my work are digital methods and the concepts of Open Science and Citicen Science in the field of historical research. After several years as research assistant at Chemnitz University of Technology (Institute of European History, Institute of European Studies), I work as head of the divison “Saxonica” (since 2016) and vice head of the department “Manuscripts, Rare Prints, and Saxony” (since 2017) at Saxon State and University Library (SLUB), Dresden.


From 2003 to 2011, I studied at universities in Leipzig, Chemnitz and Prague. I hold a B.A. in European History and a M.A. in European Integration with focus on East-Central Europe.
