Katharina studied Classics and Political Science in Freiburg, Bologna and Southampton. She graduated in 2017. Throughout her studies, she held a scholarship of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes).

In 2017, Katharina joined the LBI as a Junior Researcher. She is based at the Classics Department of the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, one of the LBI’s partners. Currently, Katharina is working on her PhD Project, an edition of Adam Contzen’s Methodus Doctrinae Civilis (1628).
