Research fields

Economic sociology | Industrial organization and governance | Transnational innovation and production systems

Short profile

My research interests focus on the changing organization of innovation, work, and production in complex technology sectors such as the automotive or the IT industries. More specifically, I am interested in: transnational divisions of labor; local and national institutional embeddedness; industrial upgrading processes; and technological change.

Before starting my current position at the WZB, I studied sociology, East European studies, and philosophy in Germany, Poland, and Singapore.
