About me

Hello! I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. I completed my PhD at the DYNAMICS graduate school, a PhD program jointly run by Humboldt University Berlin and the Hertie School. Prior to my PhD, I worked in consulting and for the EU institutions. I obtained an MPhil in European Politics from the University of Oxford and a BA in History from King’s College London.

My interests lie in the political economy of European countries, which I examine from a comparative perspective. In my work, I study how politics interact with wage formation, income stagnation and labour market institutions. Methodologically, I specialize in time series and panel data analysis. I have also taken an interest in quantitative text analysis and in leveraging natural language processing techniques to answer questions in comparative political economy.

On this website you can find my publications, my CV and my teaching experience. Feel free to reach out at cj@mpifg.de if you are interested to connect, talk about projects and common interests!
