From journalism to research: I left my job in online journalism in order to pursue a PhD at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society. In my doctoral thesis I focus on informal regulation of internet infrastructure.

Now it is all about finishing my thesis.

However, network operators and especially internet service providers appear to be becoming more content aware. Networking is becoming more intertwined with content. This might have implications for tomorrow’s internet.
