* About *

I graduated as a sociologist in 2005 and completed my PhD in 2016.
I gained extensive international research expertise through multiple stations of my career, e.g. as a research fellow at the University of Cologne/Germany, as a research assistant at the University of New England/Australia or as a research associate of the University of Sydney/Australia. I am currently working as a freelancer for the Center for Disability Studies/University of Sydney. 

Before I became a researcher, I worked as a personal assistant for people with disabilities for more than eight years. As such, I later also chaired my company’s work council. With the experience of both worlds, research and practice,  I can ensure to offer the best-suited approach for better results of your company or single departments. Successful optimization of processes does not necessarily mean to cut costs or staff by all means. Sometimes, determining different perspectives and scrutinize for collective aims again can cause similar effects. By applying state-of-the-art qualitative research methodology and scientific analytical approaches I will determine what really matters for your company and how you can reach your goals and make your customers happy again. At AMSEL, Consulting is done in the original meaning and at its best.
