The discovery of some female composers in 2017 led me more and more into musicological research. Finally, I used the free time during the 2020 lockdowns to apply for a master's degree in musicology at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. In October I started studying, which I was able to continue alongside my artistic master's degree in London.

In September 2022 I finished my master's thesis
"German Female Composers in the 19th Century" and successfully completed the course.
