I work as a scientific librarian at the main library of the University of Zurich and am part of the Data Services and Open Access Team. Currently, I am responsible for preparing and teaching a curriculum of courses on Open Access and Open Data that will be open to all students of the University of Zurich.

Since the end of 2018, I have been an Open Access Ambassador for the SNF (Swiss National Foundation) and since 2019 also a Eurodoc Open Science Ambassador for Switzerland with a keen interest in the impact these new strategies might have on the career of early career researchers.

I am also a linguist and work at the German department of the University of Zurich on my own SNSF-funded project (project page) until summer 2021.
