Personal note:

Professionally, I have been looking at social determinants of health, observed the blurring lines of work and family spheres, asked questions about women’s and men’s gender roles and suggested solutions for policy and practice. I am a founder of the feminist project frauensalon.org and run a business supporting women in their postpartum period. Positions at Robert Koch Institute, World Health Organization and Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
