PostDoc, Swiss Tropical and Public Health-Institute, University of Basel - and - Institute of Language and Communication, Technische Universität Berlin
My main language is German - in my jobs, I speak German and English.
I’d like to speak about my two fields of activity:
Project collaboration (and the included communication) of research projects with partners in Europe, Africa and India – this collaboration could be interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary. Here, I could speak about (1) experiences from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health-Institute and my work there as well as (2) about my research on communication optimisation.
My second field is applied linguistics – in research and teaching. I’m teaching master students in Berlin with focus on languages for specific purposes (business communication, scientific communication etc.), multilingualism and German as a foreign language. But I could also speak about different topics related to linguistics.
Maybe someone wants to ask my about life in academia, commuting between cities and countries… ;-)
In a video conferencing call...
...I am happy to talk about my research.
...I am happy to answer questions about university and career-related questions.
...I am happy to moderate a discussion.
...I am happy to speak to others (e.g. to journalists, museums).
