After running her own architecture studio, she taught in various settings at different German universities.

She is council member for research of the European Interior Educators network (EIE), and was a visiting lecturer on the MA Interior Design at the Royal College of Art, London (RCA) in 2019–20.
Prof. Dr. Ebert teaches history and theory of architecture and design, and design projects – primarily on the BA and MA Interior Architecture/Interior Design.
