After my studies of Medieval History, Book and Library Science and English Philology I received my doctorate at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg. During my dissertation work on Economic History, which dealt with the “Erfurter Waidhandel an der Schwelle zur Neuzeit”, I visited numerous state and city archives. Through this extensive research in late medieval and early modern documents and files, I was able to deepen my knowledge of palaeography and to familiarize myself with the historical sources of that time. After a family break and freelance work, in which I published some scientific contributions, I am currently working since April 2018 at the WELTKULTURERBE RAMMELSBERG Museum & Besucherbergwerk in Goslar as part of the BMBF project Altbergbau 3D.
