I have a master’s equivalent (Dipl. Volkswirt) in economics with a focus on development economics from Göttingen University. After completing my master's I graduated from the Advanced Studies Program in International Economic Policy Research at Kiel Institute for the world economy. During my studies I was a research assistant at the Chair in Development Economics at Göttingen University for a project in Viet Nam, where I coordinated a team of Vietnamese researchers in the field in some of the poorest parts of the country. During my time in Kiel I also assisted the research group for Poverty Reduction, Equity, and Development at Kiel Institute for the World Economy. In 2007 / 2008 I did an internship at Asian Development Bank, Manila. Since July 2009 I have been an external doctoral candidate of J. – Prof. Lay. My PhD thesis is entitled “Constraints to informal entrepreneurs in developing countries: An empirical analysis” Currently, I am working as research associate at the Asian Development Bank in Manila.
