Hello! I am a research associate and PhD candidate in economics at DIW Berlin and Free University Berlin. My main research fields are political economy and public economics, with a focus on threats to democracy.

In spring 2024, I was a Visiting Fellow at Harvard’s Opportunity Insights Lab on the invitation of Raj Chetty, where I conducted research related to social mobility and populism.

I have contributed to policy work at DIW Berlin, the OECD, and the United Nations Secretariat. Feel free to reach out and discuss research or policy questions!
