Research Fellow at Research Group Science Policy Studies, WZB Berlin Social Research Center
Silke is a postdoctoral research fellow at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center in Germany. She has
been working in the field of science studies for many years and is interested in the relationship
between science and religion from a sociology of science perspective. In her current research project
she is conducting ethnographic fieldwork in two stem cell research labs, one in the United States and
one in Germany. The study focuses on the question of whether the religio-cultural background of
researchers affects collaborations in an international team.
