My research focuses on questions of economic and social development in the context of socio-economic inequalities. In particular, I have been working on behavioral (development) economics and the political economy of the middle-income trap. I am also interested in interdisciplinary research and the philosophy and practice of pluralism in economics.
I am a member of the ZOE Institute for future-fit economies.
I have taught a range of courses in economics and interdisciplinary area studies in Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Europa-Universität Flensburg, Freie Universität Berlin, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, and the University of Siegen.
In the pluralist economics program, I teach courses on growth, development and distribution, international political economy and philosophy of economics.

The panel discussion was part of the IMK's 3rd workshop on Pluralism in Economics, which took place in Düsseldorf from 7-9 June 2018. I also contributed a workshop on "Philosophy of economics".
