He obtained a BA in International and Area Studies with minors in Portuguese and Psychology at the University of Oklahoma in 2020. After that, he earned a Master of Public Policy at the Hertie School in Berlin, Germany in 2022.

Further, he will analyze whether these narratives increase recognition of shared disadvantages and opportunities for improvement of interethnic relations.
