Welcome! I am a postdoctoral researcher analyzing the empirical impacts of (climatic) disasters on society. My research interests range from climate, development, and environmental economics to political economy. For my research, I use geospatial, climatic, and socio-economic data and methods. In April 2021 I defended my PhD thesis “Geospatial Analysis of Natural Disasters: Economic Impacts, Societal Responses, and Political Bias” at Heidelberg University. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher in an ERA-NET project on the impacts of climate change on agricultural land use change in Eurasia.
