I studied Sociology and Theatre, Film and Media Studies at the Universities of Vienna and Malta. After a year abroad and a research job in Jerusalem, Israel, I started working at the IHS and have since been involved in different national and international projects as part of the research group “Techno-Science and Societal Transformation”. I am currently also working on my dissertation about body/self-identities of people with technological implants at the Social Sciences Faculty of the University of Vienna.
WHY AM I INTERESTED IN RESPONSIBLE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION:
I started getting involved in the field of RRI via the interest in research ethics and have since been involved in several projects on the topic. I think it is crucial to make science engageable, understandable and, yes, responsible, towards a general public in order to strengthen the knowledge and integration of society.
WHAT DO I HOPE TO LEARN / CONTRIBUTE AS COUNTRY CORRESPONDENT:
I was already involved in the original Morri project, where I, amongst other things, coordinated and contributed to the case study programme. It was interesting to see the different cases and national contexts, which can hopefully be broadened and deepened in Super Morri. I am curious about the further development of the ideas of the first project and hope to be able to contribute to that as national correspondent.
