Henrik was born and raised in Germany, close to Mannheim. He did his Bachelor’s in International Business in the German dual (work-integrated) study system, followed by a Master’s in Development Economics at FAU in Erlangen. During his master's studies, he worked as a research assistant and in a German-Pakistani research internship. The engagement led to a direct involvement in a research project, informing a social health insurance program in Pakistan. His master’s thesis contributed to the project by eliciting the population’s insurance preferences. The involvement and related travels strengthened his motivation to find ways of supporting vulnerable populations. Moreover, he loves going out into nature and is passionate about preserving our planet. Therefore, his current research interests lie in the area of development economics as well as the intersection to environmental and agricultural economics, specifically in microeconomic research and impact evaluations. In his leisure time, Henrik likes to play soccer, experiment with different music instruments, restore old mopeds, or just spend some quiet time with friends.
