I publish and teach in Gender & Sexuality Studies, particularly on topics such as gender diversity, intimacies/sexualities/relationships, im-/possibilities of emancipatory learning spaces, and LGBTIQ* movements. My PhD project is centred around inclusions and exclusions within and across LGBTQIA*-related activism and academia, particularly in relation to knowledge politics, legitimacy and ethical expectations. Additionally, I currently work as a Coordinator at the Gender Research Office of the University of Vienna.

I believe that the aim of learning is not rote learning of pre-set answers to equally pre-set questions, but a cooperatively developing a knowledge process that is connected to participants’ lives (see e.g. the works of bell hooks and Paulo Freire). In these processes, I work to engage critically with societal and institutional power relations and coercive mechanisms as well as their effects on learning. My courses also often seek to draw on different forms of knowledge and relate them to each other – specifically academic, activist, artistic and participants’ experiential knowledges.
Ich have been teaching at the universities of Vienna, Klagenfurt and Salzburg as well as the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna since 2015. In 2016, Mer Pöll and I were awarded Teaching Award of the University of Salzburg. Below are some of the courses I have taught:
