I received a B.Sc. in Economics from Mannheim University, Germany, in 2010 and a M.Sc. from University of Hamburg, Germany, in 2013. During my Master I did an exchange in the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE), Edinburgh, UK. I have been a PhD Student at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, since September 2013. In 2017 I joined the Centre for Energy Economics Research and Policy (CEERP) as a research associate.
