Academic Vita

Born and raised in the laid back northern Black Forest, I was confronted with global contradictions and distortions during several stays abroad (Central and South America, West Africa, Southern Europe). The desire to understand and change them led me to study economics.

Since then I have experienced economic thinking and acting as a fundamental problem at the roots of many contemporary crises – but at the same time as a promising field for social transformation. Dealing productively with this ambivalence in the form of publications, institution building and public appearances characterises my academic work.
