I received my Bachelor of Arts in German Literature and Language from the University of Leipzig in summer of 2016.
During my studies, I took a semester abroad at Carleton University in Ottawa and did an internship as a creative writer and editor at UFA in Berlin.


My research focuses on the works of Marlen Haushofer and Sibylle Berg. In particular, I am investigating what it is precisely about the quality of their literature that inclines readers to frequently label it as pessimistic.
