Using the Life Course Perspective as an analytical lens, he investigates what individual, group, societal and historical factors account for successful learning in the digital workplace. He holds a MSc in Social Science of the Internet from the University of Oxford, a MSc in Digital Humanities from University College London and a BA in Philosophy and Law from LMU Munich. Before joining CBS, he worked as a Data Scientist for the UN World Food Programme.
