Julia studied Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna. In April 2022, she joined the department of Science, Technology and Society Studies at the University of Klagenfurt as university assistant. Her research interests include kinship and genetics, care and state, and bureaucracy and documents. In her master thesis, Julia ethnographically investigated practices and norms of care at a public hospital in the Philippines. Currently, she is designing her PhD project at the intersection of anthropology and STS which deals with processes and materialities of knowledge and data production about kinship and resultant negotiations of belonging to the state.
