I am Teaching Professor at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy (MSPP). Since June 2011, I have been a Visiting Scholar with the Center for Public and Non-Profit Leadership (CNPL) at Georgetown University. At the McCourt School, I teach courses on Intermediate Microeconomics, International Political Economy, Finance in Development and the Thesis Workshop. In 2018, I received the Leslie Whittington Faculty of the Year Award.
Before joining the McCourt School, I was working as a Senior Research Assistant at the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for European Integration at Freie Universitaet Berlin. During this time I worked on the design and implementation of several scientific and public consulting projects and taught courses on international political economy. From 2008 until 2009, I was also an adjunct lecturer in economics at Akademie Mode & Design in Berlin.
In 2010 I received my PhD in Political Science/Political Economy from Freie Universitaet Berlin. I graduated with a diploma in Economics (equiv. MSc) from the Ludwigs Maximilians University of Munich in 2006. Given my specialization on international political economy, I wrote my doctoral thesis on the political economy of lending booms.
