I obtained a doctoral degree in economics (Dr. rer. pol.) from the Europa-Universität Flensburg in 2016. My thesis was concerned with Aspirations and the persistence of poverty and inequalities. I studied Languages, Economics and Cultural Studies (diploma) as well as Governance and Public Policy (BA) at the University of Passau and the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. As a student, I spent a highschool year in the Dominican Republic and returned there many times, e.g. to do research and to learn from people at this non-governmental research center. Before my doctoral studies, I gained some practical experience in the development sector, e.g. at the German Development Institute (DIE) and the German Corporation for International Cooperation GmbH (giz).
