I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics, University of Vienna.
My research interests are in labor economics, economic history, and applied microeconomics. In particular, I am interested in the determinants of marital assortative matching and its long-run implications on social mobility, inequality, and the provision of public education. To examine these issues empirically, I analyze outcomes on "the world's most exclusive marriage market" - the London Season, where the high society of Victorian Britain sent their offspring to find Mr. and Mrs. Right.
I am also interested in questions of political economy, education, and fertility.
