DSCN0358 (4)I am an assistant professor in the department of political science and research director of the Joint Initiative of German and European Studies (JIGES) at the Munk School of Global Affairs 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. For this research, I have received support from the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy, the Free University Berlin’s Program for Advanced German and European Studies, and the Johns Hopkins University’s American Institute for Contemporary German Studies. Parts of this project have also been recognized by the American Political Science Association’s European Politics & Society section (Best Paper Award in 2017).

My work has appeared in Politics & Society, the Review of International Political EconomyForeign Affairs, and in several policy outlets.

I teach courses on European politics and political economy at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) and the University of Toronto (St. George). I received my Ph.D. from the George Washington University.
