About me

Starting June 2020, I am the principle investigator in a DFG-funded research project called “blockchains. media of sovereignty” located at Leuphana University Lüneburg. During the next three years, I will look at power relations within and without blockchaining ventures and communities, incl. the code involved.

This spring semester (2020) I (tele-)teached at University Basel.

Before, I was a research fellow at Mecs, Institute for advanced study on media cultures of computer simulation, a DFG Kollegforschergruppe at Leuphana University in Lüneburg. Ealier on I was a Postdoc researcher at Leuphana University, where I was contributing to the transdisciplinary research project “Complexity or Control? Paradigms for sustainable development“.

My main current research fields are blockchains as mediatechnologies of control. Additionally, I am interested in media theory/philosophy and epistemologies/methods of digital cultures. Continuing fields of interests comprise continental philosophy, history of control, governmentality, surveillance, political economy.

Please find my list of publications, talks and so forth here.

In times of need, I change my hat and become a media activist, such as this occasion.
