I am Head of the Research Group “Outcomes of Education Across the Lifespan“ at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) in Bamberg. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), where I also spent several years as a post-doc in the team of Regina T. Riphahn.

My research interests are in applied microeconomics, mainly education and labor economics, family and population economics, and public health. Find out more about my current research here.

I am a Research Affiliate at CESifo, IZA, and LASER, and a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Statistical Offices of the Federal and State Governments.
