I am a researcher at the University of Cologne and a PhD candidate in sociology at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. During the spring of 2019, I was also a visiting scholar at Columbia University in the City of New York.

Before coming to Cologne, I worked at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB), the Institute of Economic and Social Research (WSI), and the Max Planck Institute of Economics. From 2009 to 2016, I studied socio-economics (B.A.) and sociology (M.A.) in Nuremberg, Jena, Berkeley, and Dublin.

My research interests include economic sociology, higher education, labor markets, organizations, science studies, and social stratification. In my dissertation, I study the making of career aspirations in business schools.
