I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the of Cluster of Excellence „The Politics of Inequality“ at the University of Konstanz. My research interests lie in the field of comparative political economy. More specifically, my work examines drivers of change in the politics of pension and financial systems and how these two policy areas are linked through processes of pension financialization.

Before coming to Konstanz, I studied at the University of Passau (B.Sc. and B.A.), New York University (M.A.) and the University of Oxford (DPhil), and worked in Washington D.C., Berlin and Brussels

Beyond academia, I comment on current events pertaining to my research. My popular writing has appeared in outlets such as Le Monde Diplomatique, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Die Welt, Capital, and Die Zeit.
