über mich

I am a PhD candidate at the Chair of International and Development Politics at Heidelberg University’s Alfred-Weber-Institute for Economics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Axel Dreher.

I hold an MSc in Environment and Development from the London School of Economics and a BA in Philosophy and Economics from Bayreuth University.

Before joining the AWI, I have worked in applied research with different international and non-governmental organizations, for instance with the European Commission and the International Red Cross (IFRC).
