Principal Investigator of the Postsecular Conflicts Project and professor at the Department of Sociology, University of Innsbruck. PhD in social and political sciences from the European University Institute (2007), Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Rome Tor Vergata (2009-12), APART Fellow of the Austrian Academy of Sciences at the University of Vienna and the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna (2012-2015).
Her research is set at the intersection of social and political theory and comparative sociology of religion with a special focus on Orthodox Christianity. Her work is motivated by a profound interest in philosophical questions of political nature, in particular the relationship between the freedom of the human subject and community, and by a genuine perplexity about the breach between secular modernity and traditional and/or religious worldviews. With her research on the Orthodox world, she wants to make a case in point about the ambiguous relationship between the modern and the traditional and she wants to explore philosophically and empirically the difficulties of negotiating modern secular and traditional and religious views about legitimate authority, personal freedom and human rights.
