I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at Harvard University and will be on the job market 2016-2017.
My research interests are in development economics, labor economics, and behavioral economics. I am conducting field experiments focusing on topics of information asymmetries and discrimination in labor markets. I work in cooperation with the governments of South Africa and Saudi Arabia on how to improve employment prospects of unemployed youths and women. I received a Diploma in Economics from the University of Jena and an MPA in International Development from the Harvard Kennedy School.
