Assistant Professor Of Computational Social Science and Social Relations
At The University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU)

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Computational Social Science and Social Relations at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), Germany. I am also a Research Associate at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi).

Since January 2023, I am leading the Emmy Noether Research Group “GenDiT – Gender in the Age of Digitization and Technological Change.”

Previously, I worked as Assistant Professor of Social Research and Public Policy at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) and as a Global Network Assistant Professor at NYU.  

My research revolves around questions related to inequality in labor markets and the educational system, with a particular focus on gender, technological change, and migration.
