I am Research & Teaching Assistant and PhD Student in the Research Group Development & Cooperative Economics, Philipps-Universität Marburg.

My current research is about social dilemma-situations in environment contexts. I apply methods of experimental economics to gain results on incentive mechanisms for the protection of environment and natural resources. In 2017, I have carried out field experiments with local farmers in Kavango, Namibia, to examine the implication of resource scarcity as well as conservation policy measures.
