I am a project manager at the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) Open Innovation in Science (OIS) Center, a leading international hub for investigating and experimenting with open innovation research practices. Here I can live my passion for research priority setting; particularly in health sciences. I have a background in political and communication science with a focus on deliberative communication and deliberative democracy. Before joining the LBG OIS Center, I was a researcher at the Chair of Political Sociology at the University of Mannheim (Germany). I obtained my PhD in communication science at the Department of Communication at the University of Vienna (Austria).
