After that, she spent 3.5 years in Boston as visiting Ph.D. student at the MIT and as research assistant at the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems. In 2014, she completed her doctoral thesis on digital interventions for sustainable consumer behaviour at ETH Zurich and became leader of the Bits to Energy Lab Zurich. In parallel, she worked as postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Applied Microeconomics at the University of Bonn.

In addition, has she established a research group with a five-year grant from the Bavarian Ministry of Science and the Arts, and hence a fourth site of the Bits to Energy Lab.

She uses high-resolution data on human behaviour that are increasingly available both in corporate and in private contexts, focusing on applications in the energy, mobility, sustainability and health context.
