I am a (Senior) Research Associate at IZA. I finished my PhD at the University of Bonn in 2021 and visted the University of Oxford in May 2023.

My research is on the intersection of labor economics, behavioral economics, and household finance. I am interested in labor supply and financial decision of households, particularly aiming to gain a deeper understanding of the behavioral foundations underlying these choices and how they are influenced by the institutional environment.

For my projects, I use a range of advanced econometric methods and utlilize both self-collected survey data and administrative data sets. I enjoy working on complex research projects that require advanced computational skills and state-of-the-art data science techniques.

I made significant contributions to the development of GETTSIM, an open-source model of the German tax and transfer system. I apply GETTSIM in both my research and a project commissioned by the German Ministry of Family Affairs on the effects of a new basic child security (Kindergrundsicherung).
