I am an assistant professor in the department of political science and research coordinator of the Joint Initiative of German and European Studies (JIGES) at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto.

My work explores the politics of housing, financial, and labor markets in advanced economies, with regional specializations in Western Europe and the United States. My current research and book project investigate the political economy of housing capitalism in the United States and Germany from a comparative, historical perspective.

My work has appeared in Comparative Politics, Politics & Society, the Review of International Political Economy, Socio-Economic Review, West European Politics, and Foreign Affairs.

I received my Ph.D. from the George Washington University and a B.A. from Leipzig University. I am also a former John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellow at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University.
