After her studies in teacher education and inclusive education and her PhD in inclusive education at the University of Bremen, Korff went on to spend time in Oldenburg, Hanover, and Paderborn until she returned to Bremen in 2016 as a junior professor. In her research, she focuses on developing inclusive teaching with a high standard in subject specific didactics. She also works on the professionalization within teacher education as well as investigating school development processes as part of accompanying research on three school associations in Bremerhaven. At the University of Bremen, she has established the interdisciplinary accompaniment of students studying inclusive education in their practical semester and is also creating a subject related partnership with the University of Namibia together with Professor Frank J. Müller. Said partnership will be supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
