She is professor for Gender and Diversity in Engineering University (GDE) at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and professor at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The bridging professorship allows to graduate students and educate PhDs in engineering as well as in Arts and Humanities.

Her focus in research and teaching addresses the embeddedness of social factors in research and innovation processes i.e. the social construction of science and technology. Integrating diverse actors in society in participatory processes is considered key factor in order to achieve transformations to more sustainable solutions. She is engaged in integrating those perspectives in engineering curricula on national and international level, i.e. as deputy member of the German Accreditation Council.
