Curiosity is my guiding principle - I want to understand how things work. To this end, I chose a research focused career after I satisfied my curiosity in public administration.

My main research interests include contemporary aspects of migration and spatial economics. More generally, I enjoy working with GIS data. So if one can draw a meaningful map to highlight a phenomenon, I am interested.

Before I became a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at Nottingham Trent University, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher and Teaching Fellow at Queen Mary University of London. I obtained my PhD in 2017 from Leibniz Universität Hannover, where I researched the interrelation of personality and migration. During my doctoral studies, I was also a member of the DFG-funded Research Training Group ‘Globalization and Development’ and an external consultant to the OECD, investigating post-graduation mobility and labour market integration of internationally mobile students.
