Lina (she/her) is a PhD Research Fellow engaged in the Extending Digital Narrative (XDN) Project at the Department of Linguistic, Literary, and Aesthetic Studies. Her research explores the use of AI chatbots as historical re-enactors such as Anne Frank and Alexander the Great, bringing history to life in a novel and interactive manner.

Lina’s professional background includes digital content creation at a German museum focused on contemporary history and a two-year traineeship (German “Volontariat”) at a museum dedicated to the evolution of communication. She has contributed to diverse projects, including an online exploration of Berlin's Sites of Unity and the curation of exhibitions. With a M.A. in World Heritage Studies from BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg and a B.A. in cultural studies with a historical focus, Lina has delved into the challenges of Holocaust education in Poland and the use of audiovisual Holocaust survivor testimonies. Her interdisciplinary approach blends technology and history, aiming to foster more dynamic and inclusive educational spaces through the innovative use of generative digital narratives.
