Carolin’s research is situated within the field of Organizational Communication. She studies how museum professionals/workers conceptualize their work as meaningful. In particular, she is interested in how people make sense of their work under precarious conditions. She examines the implications for the worker, as well as how the services and products offered to the public are impacted by these conditions.

Carolin was a Humanities for the Public Good Fellow 2018-2019 and worked with the Ackland Art Museum staff on devising educational materials for docents and teachers. Currently, Carolin is a 2019-2020 James Peacock REACH Fellow at the Center for Global Initiatives where she is involved in awards management, communication and administration.
