I am a research associate currently leading a project funded by the Austrian National Bank (Anniversary Fund). We explore how institutional reforms affect growth on the example of British decolonization in the mid 20th century - of particular interest are the roles and incentives of experts and bureaucrats.
I hold a PhD in Economics, MA in Business, Economics and Social Sciences and a BA in Political Science/History. I have conducted research at the Universities of Warwick, Groningen and Vienna. From 2014 to 2015 I was a Visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. I am currently preparing an ERC Synergy Grant together with colleagues from Germany and the Netherlands.
