I am a research associate and PhD candidate in Economics at the DIW Berlin and Free University Berlin. My main research fields are political economy and public economics, focussing on socio-economic inequality, threats to democracy, and perceptions of public policies.

Currently, I am a visiting Raj Chetty at Harvard University’s Opportunity Insights Lab to conduct research related to social mobility.

I have contributed to policy work at DIW Berlin, the OECD, and the United Nations Secretariat, informing policy reports on poverty and inequality, early childhood education, and development policies amid geopolitical tensions.

Feel free to reach out to discuss research or policy inquiries!
