Research Interest

My research interest lies in the field of education economics, i.e., if and in which way the education of individulas affects socio-economic outcomes (such as labor market outcomes, job satisfaction, etc.) later on in life. The general field of education economics is well set in intersection 5. Given the interest in socio-economic outcomes, I am happy to have a network which also includes sociologists, for example, to look at certain points from a different perspective.

I am also very interested in improving teaching at university level, e.g., by introducing e-learning elements. For this question, I can benefit from the interdisciplinary structure of LEAD.
