I am a postdoctoral researcher in the department Survey Design and Methodology (SDM) at GESIS – Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim (Germany). Since 2018, I am also a corresponding member of the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS, University of Osnabrück, Germany).
I hold a master’s degree in International Migration and Intercultural Relations and a doctoral degree (Dr. phil.) from the University of Osnabrück.
Together with great colleagues, I co-founded the IMISCOE Standing Committee “Methodological Approaches and Tools in Migration Research” in 2019 and currently belong to its governing body. Furthermore, I am a member of the International Ethnic and Immigrant Minorities’ Survey Data Network.
My research interests include voluntary and forced migration, mobility, integration, transnationalism, methods of migration research, and survey methodology.
