About me


I am a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History and guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science. My current research interests focus on the economic history of law in the 18th and 19th centuries, the regulation of credit and debt across Europe, and the development of jurisprudence in post-war Germany.

Before coming to Frankfurt I studied law, history, and political science at the Universities of Heidelberg, Berlin, and Oxford. I completed my doctorate in Oxford under the supervision of Professors Avner Offer and Joshua Getzler.

Outside my academic life I am a passionate musician, spending a lot of time on playing music or consuming music in the Opera. Musical training received at Dr. Hoch’s Conservatory and the Frankfurt Music Academy. Internships in Journalism (print and radio), German courts and Parliament.
