She analyses how notions of robotics innovation are co-produced with the visions of social transformation and Europe-making reflected by research and innovation transnational initiatives.

Since 2014, she manages EU-funded projects at the Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Real-time Systems at TUM.
