From 1989 until 1998 I have studied History, German Literature, German Language, Philosophy and Education Science at Kiel University and have finished my studies in 1998 with my phd-thesis about ”Heringsfang und -handel im Ostseeraum des Mittelalters”. In 1998 and 1999, I was at the Archives of the county of Western Pomerania in Greifswald and holder of a scholarship of the German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungs-Gemeinschaft, DFG). In 2000, I became Assistant Professor at the Historical Institute, Kiel University, department for the history of Slesvig and Holstein and have, in 2004, defended my Postdoctoral Lecture Qualification (germ. „Habilitation“) at Kiel University, with the postdoctoral thesis „Netzwerke in Handel und Kommunikation an der Wende vom 15. zum 16. Jahrhundert am Beispiel zweier Revaler Kaufleute“ and the scientific paper „Borussifizierung des schleswig-holsteinischen Geschichtsbewußtseins, 1866-1889“. I have a venia legendi for medieval and modern history. Since 2004 I have been at the SAXO institute, first as an Assistant Professor and since 2008 as Associate Professor.
