Curriculum Vitae

Robin Preiß did his Bachelor in Sociology, and Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Georg-August-University Göttingen in 2017. Subsequently, he received from the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University Hannover the M.A. degree in Science and Society in 2019. For his master thesis he focused on digitalization projects in the craft of woodworking, where he conducted a qualitative study on transformation of work processes. During the research he compared the conception from Harry Braverman (1974) of the scientific management with the latest digitalization approaches in the carpentry area.

Currently he is doing his PhD at the University of Lübeck in the working group of the Ethical Innovation Hub (EIH). Where he is participating in the research project Digital Sovereignty via E-Government (DigS-Gov). The aim of his research is to investigate ethical and social questions that emerge with technological changes and how these transformations affect our society.
