My research in the Excellence Cluster ROOTS takes place at the intersection of economics and archaeology and focuses on the measurement of wealth inequality in pre-Christian Central Europe. In collaboration with colleagues from other disciplines, I apply statistical and economic tools to archaeological datasets to explore the origins of wealth inequality in human societies. In addition to ROOTS, I work as a PhD student in the research cluster ‘International Finance and Macroeconomics’ at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. My main fields of interest are economic history, infrastructure investments, and geopolitics.

Keywords: Measuring inequality, Central Europe, prehistory economics, statistics
