Hello, and welcome to my website.

My professional interests lie at the intersection of politics, economics and business. I am currently the first Fellow of the German Federal Ministry of Finance, where I work on policy in the framework of the Corona Task Force and the Fiscal Policy Division. Between June and November 2021, I was on secondment to the Federal Chancellor’s Office.

I am also Honorary Professor of Public Policy and Business at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, Research Associate at Cambridge University’s Centre for Business Research (CBR) and Future World Fellow at the Centre for the Governance of Change at IE University. Previously, I occupied several visiting and associate positions at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), was John F. Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellow at Harvard University and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University.

I studied politics, economics and business at Trier University, different London universities and the University of Oxford. I have commented on political and economic issues on major news channels such as CNBC, BBC, Sky News, Al Jazeera International, ZDF, France 24 and SBS Australia and have also been a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, DIE ZEIT, Süddeutsche Zeitung, El Pais, Financial Times, Foreign Affairs and the New York Times.
