Max Weber alumnus

Department of Economics

Cohort(s): 2008/2009

Ph.D. Institution

Humboldt University , Germany


Before becoming a Max-Weber fellow in 2008, I obtained my PhD from Humboldt Universität Berlin. My thesis concerned the estimation of dynamic effects of an exogenous disturbance on the economy. As an example I considered the effects of an increase in government spending on private consumption.
After one year as postdoctoral researcher at Universteit van Amsterdam, I joined the University of Bonn in 2010 to take my current position as an assistant professor.

My most recent work investigates the interaction between monetary and fiscal policy. For instance, I deal with the question whether a high level of public debt is associated with inflation in the future. In addition, I am interested in analyzing the implications of non-renewable resources for economic behavior.

At the Tinbergen Institute in Amsterdam and in Bonn I have taught 2nd year PhD level courses on Bayesian Model Estimation. Additionally I am teaching a regular class on Monetary Economics for which I have been awarded the best teaching award in economics for a non-compulsory master level class.
