I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, under the supervision of Prof. Monika Bütler at the Swiss Institute for Empirical Economic Research (SEW). I completed my undergraduate studies in economics at the University of Zurich in 2015 and worked two years as a research associate at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences at the Winterthur Institute for Health Economics. My primary research interests lie in the realm of intergenerational mobility, education, labor, and health economics.
