Before joining Goettingen University I completed my dissertation "Essays in Political Economy - Historical Natural Experiments and Economic Development" at Heidelberg University in October 2022.
My research interests lie in political economy, development economics, and economic history. I study these issues with natural experiments using spatial data and spatial estimation techniques.
