My research fields include institutional economics and the economics of gender and crime, with particular focuses on gender equality and female participation in Korea and East Asia, female migration, as well as human trafficking, gender-based violence, cybercrime, social capital, and globalization.
My work has appeared in World Development, European Journal of Political Economy, Social Science Quarterly, International Studies Quarterly, Scandinavian Journal of Economics, and elsewhere.
I have also worked for various research projects on the issues of crime, security, and development for the EU, the UN and the German government .
I received my doctorate in Economics from Georg-August of University Goettingen in Germany and master in Public Affairs from Columbia University in New York in the U.S. Prior to my post at Philipps-University of Marburg, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW-Berlin) and Georg-August University of Goettingen.
