Sociology and psychology are two fields of study that I am extremely passionate about. I received my Masters in Sociology and Social Policy from the University of Sydney (Australia) while I was working as a research assistant at the Department of Sociology and Social Policy. Since then, I have been involved in various projects and had the opportunity to build strong skills and knowledge in both, qualitative and quantitative methods. After moving back to Austria, I started as a PhD candidate at the University of Graz to continue my studies and to further narrow down on my research interests. On this site, you find some of the projects and publications I’ve worked on –- if you are interested in a full expertise of experience, please contact me.
On the following pages you also find information about my primarily research interests, including a list of publications and a general overview of my qualifications and experiences. Besides my academic activities, my interest and involvement in the field of sociological and economic questions are an essential part my everyday life.
When I’m not busy with my PhD, I devote time to my other major life passions: friends, travelling, reading, sports and the arts. In my spare time, I love playing volleyball and basketball as well as mountain-biking, surfing and climbing. My other passions are listening to music and playing instruments (drums and guitar), taking photos and spend as much time as possible with my friends and family.
