Since finishing my studies in Social Science (B.Sc.) at the University of Cologne and in Sociology (M.A.) at Free University Berlin, I started my PhD at the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences Mannheim in 2020. From 2018 to 2020 I was employed at the Berlin Social Science Center in the Projects Understanding NEETs and in the Research Group "National Educational Panel Study". I am currently employed as doctoral candidate in the Research Project DigitalQWE.

My research interests mainly revolve around the fields of social inequalities, especially the topics of labour market research, youth social exclusion and changes in society and work through digitalisation, in social and political engagement and in quantitative research. In my PhD thesis I investigate the impact of digitalisation of the working world on individuals and society.
