I am a Full Professor and Head of the Chair of Economics at the University of Würzburg in Germany. My research interest lies in the fields of Labor, Education and Migration Economics.
After finishing my PhD in Economics at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Spain in 2008, I worked as an Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) at the University of St. Gallen, in Switzerland.
I am a Research Affiliate at CEPR and a Research Fellow at the CESIfo and the Institute of Advanced Studies, member of the Standing Committee of Population Economics and the Standing Committee of Education Economics. I currently hold an ERC Consolidator Grant (2021-2026).
