German Institute for Economic Resarch (DIW Berlin)
Senior Researcher

During my research stay, I worked on skill formation and on the relationship between personality traits and education. More specifically, I analyzed the importance of family background for children's cognitive and non-cognitive skills using sibling correlations, and investigated the role of family size and family structure for children's skills. Furthermore, I examined the association between personality traits and educational outcomes, such as high school graduation, university degree, and lifelong learning.
