I am a first-year doctoral researcher in Migration Studies at the University of Sussex. My research investigates the experiences of 'Western' migrants living in Pune, India. I am particularly interested in transnational identities and the role of networks. My research project is supervised by Anne-Meike Fechter and Geert De Neve.

I received a BA in American Studies and French from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany, and the University of Burgundy, France. After my BA studies, I worked at the Goethe-Institute Pune for one year. Upon my return from India, I continued with my studies in Sociolinguistics and Multilingualism (MA) at Vytautas Magnus University, Lithuania, and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
