Biography

I´m a PhD Researcher at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence. In my dissertation, I´m trying to understand why different countries react differently to digitalization. In particular, I´m interested in the regulation of platform work (‘gig economy’), the protection of personal data, and investments in digital skills and infrastructures. 

My main research interests lie in (comparative) political economy and economic sociology. In particular, I´m interested in the impact of digitalization on capitalist societies as well as in the role of ideas in the economy and social life at large. I also have a long-standing interest in sociological theory and the philosophy of social science, especially with regard to the relationship between the social sciences on the one hand, the psychological and evolutionary sciences on the other.

I´m also a member of the international Young Weber Scholars Network and the ECPR Standing Group on Internet and Politics.
