Chair for Public Law and Gender Theory,  Humbolt University Berlin 

The law is tricky. Violence and agency are inextricably linked, and as a legal gender studies scholar, I focus on law's emancipatory promise.  In my research, I aim to  (a) illustrate how law itself is inevitably gendered and to (b) open up space for alternative legal reasoning. 

Apart from my academic work, I practicised law in Vienna and still work closely with civil society actors.
