About

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.

Earlier, I held a postdoc position at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where I worked on the consequences of occupational closure for changing wage inequality. 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 my dissertation I investigated processes of boundary negotiation in immigrant societies. I graduated in Social Sciences from the University of Mannheim in 2011.
