I have written several articles for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about, for example, digital history, new forms of journalism, contemporary poetry and listicles.


In addition to academic and journalistic texts, I write – and have occasionally published – poems in German and English. I was awarded the 2016 young writers award of the city of Düsseldorf for my poetry.

Still from the film made for the award ceremony of the young writers award. Film by Michalis Nicolaides, 2016.
