I’m an applied microeconomist with a focus on behavioral and experimental economics. In my research I combine theory and experimental evidence to structure and guide analysis. My interests are quite varied: in the past, I have worked on
the interaction between concerns for animal welfare and prosocial behavior towards human beings (it’s positive)
understanding when customer-driven pricing mechanisms work (it depends…)
examining whether context influences decision making in a speed dating experiment (it does).
In other capacities, I like to travel, cook, brew beer, read, and most importantly play the bassoon and contrabassoon. I’m actively participating in several orchestras in Munich (though not always at the same time…): the Munich International Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestra Munich Andechs, and the Blutenburg Kammerphilharmonie. I’m also one of the founding members of aulos klangakademie e.V., which organizes an annual one-week choir and orchestra camp.
I am currently employed at the University of Munich, where I have been a research and teaching assistant at the chair of Prof. Dr. Klaus M. Schmidt for the past three and a half years. I’m expecting to receive my doctorate in economics in May 2017.
Prior to that, I completed my M.Sc. at the University of Munich, and my B.A. at the University of St. Gallen. Please find my detailed CV here.
