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 Monday, 19 June 2017, I submitted my PhD thesis Mapping the Transnational World: Towards A Comparative Sociology of Regional Integration to the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences. It will be reviewed by Jan Delhey, Steffen Mau, and Jürgen Gerhards. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to access the dissertation.
