For about two years a scientific collaboration as well as a friendship has connected her to Professor Walter Thirring. In February 2007 their book Einstein entformelt (Einstein deformulated) was published, which is the effort to explain special relativity without formulas or arithmetic, but only by the means of diagrams. As a scientist and a humanist she is especially interested in the complementarity of science and religion and the dialogue between these two fields. She also works for the Austrian LSI by organising so-called Kardinal Knig Meetings, which are lectures and discussions about various topics concerning science and religion.
