Currently, she is a research associate at the Cluster of Excellence ‹An Interdisciplinary Laboratory. Image Knowledge Gestaltung› at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Her research for the project ‹Image Guidance› traces the ways in which medical images are produced and used within the field of neurosurgery. This project includes field research at the Department of Neurosurgery at Charité University Hospital Berlin where Rebekka analyzes the needs of users who employ medical images and related software applications in various clinical settings and daily routines.
