ABOUT ME

I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Mannheim and a Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Duisburg-Essen.

In December 2019, I defended my dissertation "Migration Economics and Family Policy: 4 Empirical Essays Considering
Demographic Change" supervised by Reinhold Schnabel and Herbert Brücker (summa cum laude). In this thesis, I examined the effects of ethnic networks and language training on immigants' labour market integration. In addition, I analyzed the question of whether early childcare promotes maternal labor participation and fertility behavior.

I am currently continuing my work on vocational education, migration, and labor markets as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) in Bonn (Germany).
