She is particularly interested in the question how crime is transforming in the age of cyber and AI and how these transformations (e.g. automation) affect the applicability of criminological theories. She also dealt with this question in her PhD project "From cybercrime to cyborg crime: an exploration of high-tech cybercrime, offenders and victims through the lens of actor-network theory".
