is Assistant to the Director at the Ecologic Institute Berlin and a postdoctoral researcher at the European New School of Social Digital Studies of the European University Viadrina. In her current research, she employs computational methods in order to ensure a higher degree of transparency and reliability of the lawmaking process. She uses visualization techniques to expose patterns of legislative behavior and allow voters (and in particular young voters) a better control of the manner in which their interests are represented by the political elites. Luana strongly believes in children’s ability to understanding complex global issues with more ease than we give them credit for. This is why she co-created CUiB, an educational board-game inspired by her experience in research and teaching university students, and in which she uses alternative means of transmitting academic knowledge. She completed a B.A. and an M.A. in European Studies and holds a doctoral degree in Political Science.
holds a Master of Public Policy from the Hertie School in Berlin and a Master of Public Administration from the London School of Economics and Political Science. In her research, she focused on digital governance and on increasing public value by reshaping public sector structures and procedures. Alexa is deeply convinced that in order to create a more resilient and less divided society innovations to pedagogy and didactics are needed. By relying on a collaborative approach and using age-appropriate tools children can be introduced to scientific insights. This will create a basis for trust and interest in science and make them less vulnerable to manipulation. Alexa worked in public sector consulting, policy consulting and public and regulatory affairs at OFCOM, EY, KPMG, Miller and Meier Consulting and Deutsche Bank on national and European level. Alexa did her bachelors degree in cultural science, social science and linguistics at the Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder).
