I am currently the DAAD-Lektorin in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University. In 2012 I completed my Bachelor in English and German at the Technical University of Dresden. Following this in 2015, I studied at the University of Leipzig, Germany and the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa and completed a Bi-National Masters Degree in German as a Foreign Language in a German-African Context. Before joining Durham in 2016 I worked as a DAAD-Language Assistant at the University of Leeds.
