After graduating from Düsseldorf University with a degree in history, mathematics and philosophy, she obtained an M.Phil in ‘International Relations’ at the University of Cambridge. She continued her studies at Cambridge with a doctoral project on Anglo-German Relations after the Second World War under David Reynolds.

Since September 1994 she has been at the Department of Modern History at the University of Birmingham.


Her research has spanned a range of themes in contemporary history from post-war diplomatic history and the history of European integration and from the history of 20th century physics to, more recently, interdisciplinary research on conflict and security with particular emphasis on conflict-related sexual violence and children born of war. She has led several international and interdisciplinary research projects in these fields, including an AHRC-funded network on children born of war (CHIBOW).
