He is particularly interested in the manufacturing aspects of Germany’s Energiewende (energy transition) and the lessons to be learnt for development economics. His wider research interests include the political economy of development, structural change, innovation, premature deindustrialisation, and the role of the state in development.

As of 2021 he teaches in IIPP’s Master of Public Administration module Creative Bureaucracies and is coordinating IIPP’s Theory Reading Group.
