studied psychology at Ruprecht-Karls University in Heidelberg and completed her studies with a master’s degree focussing on developmental and clinical psychology. After her studies, she worked as an architectural psychologist at bb22, architects + urban planners, in Frankfurt. In her PhD project, she addresses transitions to multigenerational cohousing. She is intrigued with the interaction between people and their environment as well as its meaning for individual perception and behaviour. This approach contributes to the research training programme on the level of individual shaping of transitions in housing.
