My research and educational activities cover regional/urban economics and social-ecological systems. Among topics of interest are resilience, climate change, land use, biodiversity, the energy transition, social and spatial inequalities, labor market dynamics, and wellbeing - especially with an interdisciplinary scope. Methodologically, I am interested in cross-sectional dependence and spillover effects, and have experience with a wide range of approaches - inter alia, applied and spatial econometrics, input-output analysis, and network analysis.

Before joining the Urban Economics group as an Assistant Professor, I was a Research Fellow at the Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute and the Paris School of Economics. From 2016-2018 in Paris, I was part of the international and interdisciplinary EU Horizon 2020 Green-Win project on climate change actions and sustainable development. Prior to this, I received my Research Master and PhD (2016) with honors from the Department of Economics, Econometrics and Finance, Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen.
