Personal website  

I am a social scientist with a background in political science, economics, and physics. My research investigates how culture and population changes interact with socio-political development. Specific topics include how value change shapes our contemporary world, the effects of population changes on politics, and the cultural evolution of fertility transition.

My work is interdisciplinary and benefits from perspectives in both evolutionary and non-evolutionary social sciences. The main approach is theoretical and statistical computational modeling, which aims to bridge conceptual and empirical research and inspire further data collection, such as surveys or lab experiments.

I work in the Lise Meitner Research Group BirthRites and previously received my Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
