I am a researcher and instructor at the Chair for International and Comparative Political Economy at the Free University of Berlin. I recently completed my dissertation, which was supervised by Thomas Rixen and David Weisstanner. My first academic appointment was at the University of Bamberg, where I worked at the Public Policy chair.

My research focuses on political economy and comparative politics. I am interested in political conflicts about the distribution of income and wealth. Visit the research and publication tabs of my website to learn more!
