"Meine Forschung konzentriert sich auf methodologische Probleme in den Wirtschafts-, Sozial- und Biomedizinwissenschaften sowie auf Fragen der politischen Ökonomie.

Gegenwärtig beschäftige ich mich mit der Rolle wissenschaftlicher Expert*innen in Demokratien und den Auswirkungen des Wertpluralismus auf sozioökonomische Institutionen. 

Daran angrenzend interessieren mich auch die Wechselbeziehungen zwischen wissenschaftlichen, sozioökonomischen und politischen Institutionen."
