Before joining the University of Bonn in 2023, she worked as an Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam and spent one year as an economist at the research department of the European Central Bank. She completed her Ph.D. in economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in 2017 and graduated from the European Doctoral Program (EDP) the same year. Before her doctoral studies, she studied Economics and Political Sciences at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the Univerité Paris Dauphine. Her research focuses primarily on household finance, macroeconomics, housing markets, and gender equality. Her research aims to develop an understanding of how expectation formation and decision-making work at the micro-level and explores what this implies for the macroeconomy, the financial system, and optimal policy design.
