I am focusing on the intellectual roots of the ‘eco-social market economy’ in post-war Germany, specifically on the influence of ordoliberalism and the Freiburg School of Economics on environmental policy making.
I completed my BA in International Relations at King's College London (2015-2018) and my MPhil in Economic and Social History at the University of Oxford (2018-2020) before starting my DPhil in Modern European History in 2021. I am a Europeaum and a Hanseatic Scholar.
