After graduating from secondary school, I did a one-year European Voluntary Service in the north of France in a Christian association that supports people in homelessness and other difficult circumstances.

Afterwards, I studied law (Bachelor of Laws "German and French Law", Maîtrise de droit "European and International Law", First State Examination in Law) as well as history and art history (Bachelor of Arts, focus on the European and Islamic cultural areas) at the Universität Passau, the Pakistani Lahore University of Management Sciences, the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, the French Université de Nantes and the Palestinian Birzeit University; complemented by stays in Lyon, Stuttgart and Frankfurt/Main (law firms), in Berlin (Museum für Islamische Kunst) and Geneva (Permanent German Mission to the United Nations and other International Organizations) as well as by various study trips.

I then did my legal clerkship in Fulda (regional court, public prosecutor, lawyer), Frankfurt/Main (S. Fischer Verlage, Städelschule), Kassel (administrative court) and Berlin (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media).

After the Second State Examination in Law, I worked for almost two years as a legal assistant in the Dispute Resolution department of the Frankfurt/Main office of an international law firm. I also taught at the Hochschule Fulda – University of Applied Sciences, partly repeatedly, Civil Procedure Law, Fundamental Rights and a course especially for foreign students entitled "Law & Society".

Since October 2022, I am research assistant at the Professorship for National and International Public Law with a Focus on the Protection of Cultural Heritage at the Institute of Cultural Studies as well as at the Institute of Public Law and International Law of the Department of Social Sciences and Public Affairs at the University of the Bundeswehr Munich.

As a doctoral student at the Institute for Art History at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, I am moreover working on my doctoral thesis in which I am

  • considering philosophically, historically, culturally, legally and economically what "cultural good" / "property" actually is,
  • attempting to answer the question of to whom an object should belong culturally and legally,
  • elaborating all this by means of case studies from the European and Islamic cultural and legal areas.
