I am preparing my PhD thesis in Information Studies since 2015. I finished two studies (M.A.): sociology and history of art (2008) first, and then library and information sciences (2014). My research fields cover: scholarly communication, electronic publishing, openness in research, global information equity, knowledge representation, Luhmann's theory of social systems and sociology of art.


About the research

Currently, my research interests are focussed on scholarly communication, but knowledge representation, diversity in higher education, and sociology of art are within my scope, too. My PhD Project "How International are Social Sciences & Humanities? Retrieving Literature from East Africa in Europe" approaches to further postcolonial research questions in information studies.
