Since August 2012 I work as a social scientist within the interdisciplinary research group "Cooperative Normsetting" at the Institute for Computer Science at Heinrich-Heine-University.
From 2008 to 2011 I completed a doctorate at the University of Cologne, funded by the German Science Foundation, on Alternative Spiritualities in Europe. The study revealed which individual factors and contextual conditions explain the emergence of spiritual beliefs in Europe.
Before my doctorate (from 2006 to 2008) I worked as research assistant at the Central Archive for Empirical Social Research at University of Cologne (now: Data Archive for the Social Sciences) and as assitant to the president at GESIS e.V.
From 2000 to 2005 I studied social sciences at SciencesPo Bordeaux and University of Stuttgart.
