Welcome to my website and blog!

I am a Postdoc at GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Cologne. I am scientific coordinator of the GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology and the GESIS Spring Seminar.

I submitted and defended my dissertation on “Discrimination in Education” at the University of Bamberg in 2017. It has been published in the GESIS Scientific Series and is available open access via SSOAR.

Previously, I worked as a research associate at the LIfBiLeibniz-Institute for Educational Trajectories, at the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS), and in my own BMBF-funded project on “Discrimination in Education: Micro Mechanisms and Macro Determinants”.

From 2003 to 2009 I studied Social Sciences (Sociology, Social Psychology, Quantitative Methods/Statistics, Educational Psychology) at the University of Mannheim and Indiana University Bloomington.
