I am a Ph.D Candidate in Development Economics and a Research Associate at the Chair of International and Development Politics at Heidelberg University under the supervision of Prof. Axel Dreher. I am also a Research Associate at the Chair of Development Economics at University of Göttingen contributing to the DFG funded project `Empirical Analyses of Emerging Donors in Development Cooperation’ lead by Prof. Andreas Fuchs. I am interested in the challenges that arise from the changing international donor landscape and the necessity to mainstream environmental sustainability into global poverty alleviation.

During and prior to graduate school, I have worked in applied research with different international and non-governmental organisations, such as the World Bank, the European Commission Joint Research Center and the International Red Cross (IFRC). I hold an MSc in Environment and Development from the London School of Economics and a BA in Philosophy and Economics from Bayreuth University.
