I am an early career academic interested in understanding social structure from a geographical, temporal, and network perspective. I am particularly concerned with the role of social networks in the genesis of social inequality. To this end, I employ methods of quantitative empirical social research (esp. multilevel and survival analysis), social network analysis, and agent-based modeling.
I was awarded a B.A. in Sociology and Economics (minor) from the University of Mannheim (Germany) and a M.Sc. in Sociology (with distinction) as well as a M.Sc. in Methods and Statistics from the University of Utrecht (Netherlands). Since September 2017, I pursue a Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA).
