I am a senior researcher in comparative political economy at the University of Zurich. After studying economics in Münster and St. Gallen, I have spent my research career in several different institutions: during my PhD at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, afterwards as a Max-Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, and most recently as a John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellow at Harvard University’s Center for European Studies. During my dissertation, I have also been a visiting researcher at Georgetown University and at the International Monetary Fund. Since 2018 I am an elected member of the Junge Akademie, the German national academy for young academics.
