Media Appearances

“Wissenschaftler reagieren” (Arte Online Format)


I had the pleasure of being a guest on the online format “Wissenschaftler reagieren” (German for “scientists react”) of the German-French TV channel Arte. Inspired by the movie “Hidden Figures”, the host Cedric Engels (known as “Doktor Whatson“), Dr. Lara Altenstädter and I discussed about sexism and discrimination against women, especially in STEM, power abuse in academia and how it is supported by the German academic system, and why it is so important that female scientists serve as publicly visible role models. A highlight video will be published on Arte’s YouTube channel.

Science Slams

For me, science slams are a great opportunity to communicate research and to explain scientific facts and issues to a public beyond the academic world. By abstracting complex topics and transforming them into an entertaining stage show, I have the chance to impart knowledge and to arouse the audience’s interest and enthusiasm for computer science.
