Welcome to my page

I am a Ph
D student in Economics at the University of Edinburgh.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in Microeconometrics.
In my current working paper I test the relative explanatory power of different interdependent preference specifications w.r.t. self-reported life satisfaction.

I grew up in a small town near Munich, Germany. During my undergraduate studies at LMU Munich I spent a year abroad at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.
After obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Economics I attended the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics at the University of Edinburgh.

Upon finishing my MSc I worked a few months as a research assistant for ifo-Institute and as a teaching assistant at LMU Munich before moving back to Edinburgh to continue my studies.

In my free time I enjoy playing soccer and basketball. I like everything outdoor-related and am a big fan of trekking.
On the few days of the year on which the Edinburgh weather does not invite for sunbathing or swimming in the sea I play guitar, chess, or card games.
