I am a professor at the Department of Economics of the University of Cologne, IZA Research Fellow, and CESifo Affiliate. I am also closely affiliated with the Institute on Behavior and Inequality (briq). I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Mannheim.

My research revolves around human capital and socioeconomic inequalities. It includes work on educational decision making, early childhood health, applied microeconometrics, and behavioral economics.
