Born and raised in southern Germany, I graduated from the University of Konstanz with a BA in politics and public administration. Additionally, I spent a semester abroad at Sciences Po Bordeaux and worked as an intern at the office of a Member of Parliament, as well as for a leading political communication agency. During my undergraduate studies, I served on the board of the youth organisation of the German Social Democratic Party in the state of Baden-Württemberg, most recently as deputy leader. Moreover, I was elected to the city council of Engen. I became supervisor of a municipally held energy company and one of the mayor's deputies. Furthermore, I was responsible for technical and environmental issues within the associated committee. My policy interests include the challenges of climate change and especially sustainable urban planning. In Oxford, I want to deepen my understanding of governmental policy and enrich my skillset to initiate further change.
