Hi, I’m Marcel. I write about publishing, media innovation, open access, and some other stuff. Currently, I’m studying Publishing (MA) at UCL (University College London) and work in different projects in scholarly communication, such as Knowledge Unlatched or the Academic Book of the Future project (UCL/KCL).
Before moving to London, I studied Publishing Management at HTWK Leipzig, Germany, with an emphasis on strategy and innovation. Surrounding these studies, I worked as bookseller and did several internships in marketing and business development. My latest occupations include the media startup Eisbär Media and the academic publishing house De Gruyter in Berlin. On the side, I’m very keen to be part of panel discussions or give speechs about innovation, disruption, or publishing.
For my studies, I’m backed with a scholarship of the German National Merit Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) and the 2015/2016 John Wiley & Sons scholarship.
