Research interests (Forschungsschwerpunkte) I am a sociologist conducting qualitative research into a variety of domains and subdisciplines such as Science & Technology Studies, Cultural Sociology and Responsible Research and Innovation.
My latest empirical studies have been about governance and responsible innovation. Earlier empirical work concerned trust and quantification in global microfinance.
