Chair of Public Law and Gender Studies, HU Berlin 

As an academic lawyer I have specialized in Legal Gender Studies. Interdisciplinary contexts are thus an important and valuable environment for my research. However, I am also familiar with the skills of legal practice - especially in the field of migration law. My various experiences taught me to understand law as a socio-legal phenomenon and  particularly sharpened my interest in legal reasoning as a social practice. The research group now provides me with the unique opportunity to thoroughly address this question.
