I am an assistant professor at the Free University of Berlin. From 2018 until 2020, I was an assistant professor at the University of Groningen. I completed my Ph.D. in 2019 at the Free University of Berlin under the supervision of Peter Haan (FU Berlin & DIW Berlin) and Richard Blundell (UCL & IFS).
My research interests are Structural Econometrics, Behavioral Economics, and Labor Economics. I am especially interested in how individuals make decisions over their life-cycle and how behavioral elements impact these choices. Most of my work focuses on time preferences and expectations, and I develop new strategies to recover these from standard administrative and survey data. Most often, I rely on policy environments and natural experiments for identification. With the help of structural models, I also analyze how public policy can lessen the negative consequences caused by behavioral decision-making.
