About me

I am a Team Leader and Senior Research Associate at IZA - Institute of Labor Economics. I am affiliated with CESifo in Munich and the CRC TR 224 "Economic Perspectives on Societal Challenges".

My research focuses on the field of labor economics and the economics of education, overlapping with public economics and political economy. As an applied micro-economist I address policy-relevant questions on how social environments and individual behavior and decisions interact in determining the formation of skills and affect economic inequality. My research has been published in journals such like the Economic Journal, the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Journal of Labor Economics, Journal of Public Economics, and the Journal of Human Resources
