As such, she contributes to the new and interdisciplinary humanities and to the Scholarship of Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning (SoITL). She leads the research group Subjects in Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching (SILT), a theme under the umbrella of the research initiative Transmission in Motion, and coordinates the special interest group AI in Cultural Inquiry and Art: Thinking and Making in the Algorithmic Condition, a SIG of the focus area Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence.
