He studied social anthropology as well as literary and cultural theory in Munich, Tübingen, Durham, and London. During his studies he worked on the socio-political implications of infrastructural and energy transitions, e.g. regarding energy cooperatives in Germany. He is interested in the making of ‘the state’ as well as in the relation between infrastructure, the reproduction of social inequalities, and non-state political organisation.
