I am a researcher at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Germany and received my Ph.D. in economics from the University of Würzburg. I am also a lecturer for environmental, social, and economic policy at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Mosbach. My main research concentrates on labour economics, migration economics and social policy. Currently, I’m working on the evaluation of the German Participation Opportunities Act in terms of its impact on the evolution of long-term unemployed social participation and employability.
