Under Construction

(but aren't we all!)


My "interim title" has become so dear to me that I have indeed decided to keep it!


Most of us know it well: this sometimes nagging feeling to be "under construction" - to be neither here nor there, to feel unsure of yourself or your next step, or to feel stuck in uncertainty and muddy waters. If you are looking for a competent and spirited travel companion for part of the way that lies ahead of you, welcome! (Were you looking for a yoga & meditation teacher instead? This way please.) I am most but certainly not exclusively equipped to working with academics as well as so called "Jacks and Jackies of all trades" - with all the special challenges that life in academia as well as the refusal to become a master of only one trade entails. Feel free to contact me for a brief conversation (without any costs or obligations) so we can find out if we are a good coaching match.


I am also more and more in the business of offering workshops and trainings for groups of early career researchers (ECR). If you are interested in that, find out more on the following page.

About me

As a typical scanner personality I am enthusiastic about many things I consider meaningful. I am happiest, however, when my work espouses a strong element of being in connection with other people – as a sparring partner, as a team leader and as an instructor. This is why I left a good decade of academic life behind me and chose a patchwork life that suits my different interests and passions. While working part-time for a humanitarian aid organization as a project manager and team leader from 2021 to 2023 (here), I gradually developed my freelance career as systemic coach and trainer (certified at isb). I am currently the academic coordinator of the research center TraCe (Transformations of Political Violence), and I have also been an occasional yoga and meditation teacher since 2018. I live in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and I offer coaching and training sessions off- and online. If you would like to know more, find me on LinkedIn here or on my current institutional website here. And if you are curious about multipotentialism, find my (German) considerations about this here at tbd*.
