Here is my Curriculum Vitae

I am a senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies and an interim professor of sociology at the University of Wuppertal. I co-organize the SASE Research Network Digital Economy and have been a member of SASE’s Executive Council since 2020.

My empirical research investigates energy transitions, economic competition, multinational firms, innovation and technology policy, and the postindustrial economy. Currently, I am working on papers on institutional change in climate change policies in the European Union and on conditionality in industrial policy. I am also finishing work on my second book based on a comparative historical analysis of deindustrialization in Germany and the United States.
