Dr. Alina Greiner

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Development Research Group since 2022. In my dissertation -- which I completed at the Graduate School of Decision Sciences -- I investigate the social legacies of civil wars. In particular, I aim to shed light on the gendered experiences, consequences, and potential benefits of conflict.

I hold an undergraduate degree (B.A.) from the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg in Socioeconomics, and a graduate degree (M.A.) from the University of Konstanz in Politics and Public Administration. I have also studied at the University College Cork as well as the University of Essex and was a Visiting Researcher at Yale University.

My current research focuses on post-war legacies, unobtrusive measurement of violence, and women's empowerment. In the upcoming winter semester, I am going to teach an undergraduate seminar on "Data and Methods in Conflict Research".
