As Director of the Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology, I focus my scientific work on the 1st century AD in Central, Northern and Eastern Europe. The interrelations between the Roman Empire and the Barbarian period are as much the focus of my interest as the development of social elites in Northern Europe. Another research focus is the archaeology of the Iron Age of former East Prussia. My activities in the field of science communication are closely linked to the UNESCO World Heritage sites Danewerk and Haithabu, with the large museums in Schleswig representing central mediation units.

Keywords: Archaeology of the 1st millennium AD in Central, Northern and Eastern Europe, science communication
