I am a PhD candidate in political science under the supervision of Prof. Achim Goerres at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Since 2020, I have been conducting research on the political psychology of fiscal solidarity in the European Union. I want to find out what makes people willing to contribute to transnational financial transfers in the EU. I want to understand how individuals form their policy preferences in general and specifically when it comes to fiscal and budgetary policy in the EU.
I am a German based in Brussels. Since 2016 I have been working as a political advisor for budgetary policy to Member of the European Parliament Jens Geier.
