WELCOME

I am a quantitative macroeconomist and acting full professor at the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT).

 

My primary research field is macroeconomics with incomplete markets and in particular

  • macro-banking (resilience/vulnerability of banking systems and macro-prudential regulation)
  • macro-labor (design of labor market institutions and structural reforms)

Furthermore, I have research projects in the fields of computational economics and economics of climate change.

 

In addition to my academic research, I have been working on several consultancy projects on structural reforms and public investment programs for, amongst others, the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, and the Bertelsmann Foundation.
