He is associate researcher at the Institute for Social Research, Frankfurt am Main. He was trained in sociology at Lancaster University, social philosophy at Goethe University Frankfurt, and graduated in social and cultural anthropology from University of Vienna in June 2019. He was a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle/ Saale and Postdoc Fellow of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW). His dissertation investigated reconfigurations of provisioning during the economic crisis in Greece.
