Tatjana studied American studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the University of British Columbia (UBC). Her master's thesis discussed the gendered self-presentation of Hillary Rodham Clinton in the realm of politics. After receiving her master’s degree in 2021, she joined the class of culture and history at LMU’s graduate school of language and literature.

In her Ph.D. project, she explores the representation of women in the U.S. presidential primaries since 1972. Here her focus lies on the roles and regulations of the two major parties. Her research interests include political science, especially elections, representation, and participation, as well as the gender dimensions of such spaces. In the future, she hopes that her work will help the effort to identify and eliminate gender bias in political mechanisms.
