Before that, I was a local project manager and (postdoctoral) research associate at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin as well as a teaching and research associate at the Technical University of Vienna and at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) Munich. I was a visiting (doctoral) researcher at several universities in the United States.

I received my PhD in social and economic sciences from the Technical University of Vienna. I hold a MA in Sociology, a MSc in Business Administration, as well as a MA and a BA in Philosophy from the University of Vienna. Moreover, I hold a BSc in Business, Economics, and Social Sciences from WU Vienna University of Economics and Business and a BA in Business Consultancy from the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt.

I enjoy skiing, hiking, stand-up comedy, and the virtues of espresso.
