  • CV - Short Version

    I am a Ph.D. student at Freie Universität Berlin and a research associate at the public economics department at DIW Berlin.

    I am an applied microeconomist whose research integrates elements of labor, public and behavioral economics. In particular, I study how career dynamics are affected by bounded rationality. My research identifies potential limitations of rational decision making and quantifies their consequences. Additionally, I analyze how public policy can aid individuals in making more efficient choices.

    In my job market paper, I demonstrate how expectations about future employment prospects can be identified using exogenous variation caused by policy reforms. Estimations show that mothers strongly overestimate their future employment prospects, which causes longer career breaks and increases the costs of motherhood.
