She supported her MPs work at the Bundestag Inquiry Committee on the murders of the rightwing terrorist group NSU (2015-2017), where Susann Rüthrich was vice chair.

In her master thesis, she explored the effects of gender-specific online harassment and coping strategies, particularly when dealing with threats of sexualized violence.
