The Profile Area 'Orders & Transformations' deals with the urgent social problems of our time. To me, working in this Profile Area is extremely exciting, since I am able to gain scientific insights into issues affecting us all. Analyzing these big issues requires interdisciplinary collaboration and the combination of different methods and insights.
“Where, if not at our university, which enjoys worldwide renown in this field, should empirically and normatively profound research be conducted into how and by what means the orders in which we live are changing? Doing so requires advanced research that combines different disciplines and thereby arrives at new questions and answers. I want to contribute to this effort, not least because I learn a lot in the process."
