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.
Finally I managed to create this research website, a project that had been in the pipeline for a long time. Inspired by Michele Coscia, whose fascinating posts I highly recommend following, I am simultaneously starting this blog. Time will tell whether it will actually evolve into a fully-fledged research blog with regular original posts, or whether it will merely consist of short notes about new publications, collaborations, and the like. Please have a look around! Any comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
