Currently, she is also a Visiting Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics. Previously she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Stern School of Business, New York University, USA (2015-2016). She received her doctoral degree in Business Administration/Management at the University of Hamburg, Germany (2012-2015).

Her research sits at the cross section of information systems management, marketing (online consumer behavior), and social issues in management. Her research focuses on so-called "sharing economy" services, (peer-to-peer) platforms, digital trust, and algorithmic management. Among others, she worked with data from users of car2go, Airbnb, Uber, or BlaBlaCar.

Mareike holds a M.Sc. in Management from the London School of Economics, UK, and an B.A. in Communication/Media Science and Political Science from LMU in Munich, Germany. Furthermore, she was a visiting student at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po), France. Before starting her career in academia she worked in international governance for the United Nations (UNEP) in New York.

Among others she was awarded with a generous grant of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation in 2015 and a Post-doc Research Grant the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in 2015. Her work has been published in international journals and presented at several international conferences, including ICIS and AOM.

Her work and comments are frequently featured in media outlets such as The Times, The Telegraph, the Financial Times, the BBC, the World Economic Forum, The Independent, The Conversation, and many more.
