Claudia joined Aston in 2004, following a five-year appointment at the University of Bath, where she worked under the auspices of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Claudia holds a PhD in German and Scandinavian Studies from the University of Göttingen.

Claudia's research focuses on modernist and contemporary literature and culture. One of her main areas of expertise is cultural relations between Germany and Scandinavia, and she has authored a monograph on intertextuality in Thomas Mann’s works with particular emphasis on Mann’s productive reception of writings by Danish literary impressionist Herman Bang. Continuing her work in this field, she is currently involved in a research project which analyses literary representations of Scandinavia in writings by contemporary German speaking authors.

In recent years, Claudia has developed an additional research focus on cinema studies and intermediality. This interest also informs her current work on the use of video in language teaching and pedagogy.

At Aston, Claudia teaches a variety of cultural studies modules and contributes to the teaching on the International Management with Modern Languages (IBML) degree.
