I am a Researcher in the Group on Economics of Institutions led by Florian Scheuer at the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich. I am also a PhD Candidate in Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the VU Amsterdam and at the Tinbergen Institute. I study the impact of technological change on the economy, in particular on income inequality and employment – as well as implications for policy. My PhD is advised by Bas Jacobs and Björn Brügemann.
