After studying Book Studies, Theatre and Media Science and History of Modern German Literature I finished my Magister Artium with the master’s thesis "Audio Book Boom? - The current situation of the Audio Book within the German Book market” in 2004 (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg), followed by a PhD in Book Studies with the doctoral thesis “Audio recordings from the phonographic roll to the Audio Book - History, Media Specifities, Reception” in 2007 (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg). From 2006 to 2007 I was visiting lecturer at the FAU in Erlangen-Nuremberg and the HTWK Leipzig. From 2007 to 2011 I worked as research assistant at the FAU in Erlangen-Nuremberg. From October 2011 onwards I am working as a academic counsellor at the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg. My main research topics are audio book, history of media and literature, mediation of literature, reading research, forms of performing and eventisation in book culture.
