I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher on the EU Horizon 2020-Project: The Future of European Social Citizenship in the Working Group Comparative Political Economy at the University of Konstanz. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the excellence cluster "The Politics of Inequality." I am working on a variety of projects to better understand how socio-economic and political trends within and across local contexts explain variation in political preferences and analyze the effects of geographic inequality on public attitudes towards taxes and spending on a range of public goods.
In December 2019, I completed my doctorate in Public Policy at the University of Massachusetts Boston. My dissertation research examined differences in preferences for taxes and spending on public education through examining rural, suburban, and urban contexts. In 2020, I received the Public Policy Book Award for exemplary dissertation research.
