I am Postdoctoral Researcher -currently serving as Interim Professor of Comparative Politics- at the Institute for Social Sciences, Humboldt-University of Berlin. 

My main research interest lies in the politics of inequality, redistribution, and development, whereby I draw on comparative as well as behavioral approaches. My work has among others been published in Political Science Research and Methods, Social Science Research, and World Development.

I received a PhD in Political Science from Central European University and held postdoctoral positions at the University of Bremen and Bard College Berlin, and Humboldt-University of Berlin. I also worked with and for international development organizations, including the German Institute of Development and Sustainability, the Institute of Development Studies, and the German International Cooperation.
