Welcome to my website!

Currently I am a professor for social work at the State Cooperative University of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart with the emphasis on epistemology and theories of difference. In the past I have taught Gender and Diversity Studies, Queer Studies, Transgender Studies, Science Studies and Qualitative Methods at the Universities of Hamburg and Göttingen. I have attained my PhD in sociology on queer BDSM practices and communities at the University of Hamburg. The book based on the results of this study were published by Palgrave in October 2014 under the title Queer BDSM Intimacies – Critical Consent and Pushing Boundaries. My academic & activist interests include trans*, non-monogamy, BDSM, HIV & AIDS, queer science studies and epistemology.
