I received my M.A. in archaeology of the roman provinces, pre- and early history, egyptology (minor) and classical archaeology (minor) at the University of Mainz and my PhD at the University of Erfurt. The topic of my PhD was the making and use of ancient magical artefacts.

I worked as a postdoc for six years at the department of Egyptology at the University of Heidelberg and at the department of Ancient History at the University of Erfurt. From 2017-2019 I received a three year grant by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for my research about ancient magical signs, the project was located at Erfurt and Heidelberg (Germany).

Since 2020 I am an independent writer and artist.
