I'm a PhD candidate at Stanford studying states and schools in the 19th century.

Before that, I worked as a researcher (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) at the Center for Research on Education and School Development at the Technische Universität Dortmund on the large-scale assessments TIMSS 2015 & PIRLS 2016. In college, I founded Learning Enterprises Thailand in Phichit, partnered with the Ponheary Ly Foundation in Seam Reap, and interned at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.

When I grow up, I want to become a professor and an owner of a Burmese cat 🙏🏻
