I am a historian with a background in Social Sciences and Russian Studies. I am based at the Department of Economic and Social History at University of Vienna. Currently, I am working on my habilitation project dealing with the conduct of life of Austrian government employees from the late Habsburg Empire to the National-Socialist Regime. My further research interests are the history of work and livelihood, gender history, and the global division of labour in the social sciences and humanities. In the summer term 2022 I am visiting professor at the University of Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.
