I am sociologist and research fellow at the Federal Institute for Population Research in Wiesbaden, Germany. My research interests include labor market outcomes of migration over the life course, wage inequalities, social closure, and immigrant integration. My current research projects include provisioning and analyzing data of the German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study, analyzing the consequences of occupational closure for changing wage inequality, and investigating processes of boundary negotiation in immigrant societies.
Earlier, I held a postdoc position at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where I worked with Andreas Haupt and Gerd Nollmann. I received my PhD from the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences at Bremen University where I was Doctoral Fellow and grantee from 2011-2015. During my doctoral research, I also was DAAD-funded visiting student at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Mannheim where I was enrolled for Social Sciences.
