In 2017 she received an honorary mention from the »bonn hoeren – sonotopia« contest of the Beethoven Foundation for Arts and Culture Bonn. She completed the Master Sound Studies at Udk Berlin, after having studied Fine Arts between Spain, Brazil, and South Korea. She received support from the German Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations and the GOETHE Institute. She is part of the Intermission Collective of artists and board member of the BGNM e.V.

She exhibited internationally, among others, at Dystopia Festival for Sound Art (Berlin),  Space21 Festival (Autonomous Region of Kurdistan in Iraq), and the 2019 Madou Sugar Factory Art Triennial in Tainan (Taiwan). Her artistic practice moves between sonic performances and installations, which explore the acoustics of architecture, objects and their relation to the human body, movement, and the environment.
