I have been a PhD candidate at the Institute for American Studies and the Graduate School Global and Area Studies (GSGAS) at Leipzig University since 2023. In my PhD project, I investigate perceptions of nature in the US-American society from the 1970s to the 1990s, based on nature conflicts in US-American blockbuster movies.
Before I started my doctoral studies, I was a predoctoral fellow at the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1199 and the GSGAS. I studied philosophy and cultural studies at Leipzig University and, as a mobility student, at the University of Lausanne and Waseda University in Tokyo.
My research interests include cultural history, environmental history, and cultural-historical film history.
