I am a social scientists working in the fields of labor market policy and public attitudes towards social policy. Since September 2013 I am enrolled in the PhD program of the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences in Mannheim.

I received my M.A. in Sociology from the University of Mannheim and my B.A. from the University of Göttingen. While studying I spend two semesters abroad at the University of Utrecht and the University of Roskilde.

I worked as a student researcher at the Research Center Political Economy of Reforms. I gained further working experiences as a trainee at the European Commission in the area of education statistics and the German Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affaires in the area of European social security law.
