I am a doctoral researcher at the University of Basel. My research interests lie in personnel and organizational economics. Currently, I study the effects of technologies on new work and pay systems, employee motivation, and HR policies such as home office and employee monitoring, where I am specifically interested in its effect on employee empowerment and productivity, cooperation in the workplace, and its consequences for the human psyche.

Besides my research, I apply as a lecturer the knowledge I gain through my research and combine my research interests in economics with other disciplines, e.g. psychology and sustainable development. For an overview of current and past activities, see here.
