I have a Bachelor degree (B.Sc.) in Economics and Business Administration and a Master degree in Economics both from the University of Hohenheim. I finished my studies in 2012 and then I did my PhD in Hohenheim with Prof. Sibylle Lehmann-Hasemeyer, my second supervisor was Prof. Jochen Streb from the University of Mannheim. I finished my PhD in April 2016 and remained in Hohenheim as Assistant Professor (Akademischer Rat) until October 2023. During September and October 2019 I was a Guest Researcher at the Department of Economics and Related Studies of the University of York (UK). During my studies I collected practical experiences-among others-during internships at the Federal Ministry of Economics of Baden-Württemberg (in 2009) and at the IAW (Institute for Applied Economic Research) in Tübingen. Since October 2023 I am now Assistant Professor at the WU Vienna at the Institute of Economic and Social History.
