We do research in the area of Gender Studies in STEM and "Science and Technology Studies" (STS) on physics. One focus lies on intersectional research of science cultures. Using a mix of qualitative methods such as ethnographies and interviews, we investigate how categories of social inequality are inscribed in the culture and practices of “doing physics”. Another focus is on the interrelations between science, technology and society. The close ties of the research group to the department of physics enable a direct integration of research results into research, teaching and the cultures of physics.
