My research focuses on questions of economic and social development in the context of socio-economic inequalities. In particular, I have been working on behavioral (development) economics and the political economy of the middle-income trap. I am also interested in interdisciplinary research and the philosophy and practice of pluralism in economics.
I have taught a range of courses in economics and interdisciplinary area studies in Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Europa-Universität Flensburg, Freie Universität Berlin, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, and the University of Siegen.
In the pluralist economics program, I teach courses on growth, development and distribution, international political economy and philosophy of economics.

I have a new working paper with Claudius Gräbner on "The heterogeneous relationship between income and inequality: a panel co-integration approach". It is part of a larger project that studies the relationship between income levels, distribution, and economic complexity.

I was awarded the WIWA Young Scholars Award for Pluralism in Economics 2019 (Nachwuchspreis Plurale Ökonomik) by the Witten Institute for Institutional Change (WIWA) at Witten/Herdecke University. The award was handed out on 14 January 2019. I gave a talk on "Pluralist perspectives in the economics of inequality and development" (in German).
