I am a Senior Lecturer (Akademischer Rat) at the University of Göttingen's Institute of Sociology and an External Collaborator to the Global Mobilities Project at the European University Institute's Migration Policy Centre. I hold an MSc in Sociology from Oxford University and a PhD (with distinction) in the same field from BIGSSS. My research often cuts across disciplinary boundaries, covering survey research and network analyses on topics such as transnational mobility and migration, regional integration and globalization, power law structures and human behavior under uncertainty. I have been a visitor to Princeton University's Global Systemic Risk research community and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.
"On the Europeanization of Actions and Attitudes: A Macrosociological Comparison of the EU Member States", a paper co-authored with Jan Delhey, has been published (in German) at Berliner Journal für Soziologie in a special issue on Horizontal Europeanization edited by Christian Lahusen and Susanne Pernicka.
