About me

I am a research associate currently leading a project funded by the Austrian National Bank (Anniversary Fund). I am interested in the international transfers of policies and institutions - particularly 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. 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.

Before joining the academic world, I spent ten years working in international development with the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement with positions in Central Europe and the Balkans, Africa, Asia, and in Vienna. In Brussels, I represented the International Red Cross at the European Commission.
