Constanze holds two bachelor's degrees in Sociology and Physics from the University of Vienna, Austria. During her bachelor studies she spent several months at the University of Chicago, Illinois, United States of America and focused on Science, Technology and Society studies, which look at the interaction between and co-creation of these areas.
Afterwards she completed a master's degree in Physics at the University of Vienna and wrote her master's thesis at the Stefan Meyer Institute for Subatomic Physics, which is part of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Her focus was on experimental nuclear/subatomic physics and detector research and development, working with semiconductor and scintillator materials. In parallel, she completed the Middle European interdisciplinary master's programme in Cognitive Science (MEi:CogSci), a joined degree between the University of Vienna (Austria), the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), the Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia) and the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest (Hungary). During her studies she was doing a Social Data analysis project with the Complexity Science Hub Vienna and was able to spend several months at the University of Ljubljana, where she was involved in a project with the Medical Faculty. Her master's thesis was in collaboration with the Social Mind and Body Lab of the Central European University and looked into auditory-motor synchronization in a social setting.
The insights of these various fields triggered her fascination of and interest in the interaction between technology and humans. More specifically, how technological/digital aspects and social interactions/settings influence each other.
