WELCOME TO MY ACADEMIC WEBSITE!

 

I am an economist at the University of Siegen, Germany. I work as an assistant professor in the MA program Pluralist Economics. Here is my university website, and this is the website of the Research Center Pluralist Economics at Siegen (in German).

My research focuses on questions of economic and social development in the context of socio-economic inequalities. In particular, I have been working on behavioral development economics. I am also interested in interdisciplinary research and the philosophy and practice of pluralism in economics. I am a fellow of the ZOE Institute for future-fit economies and of the Forum for Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policy (FMM).

I have taught a range of courses in economics and interdisciplinary area studies in Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Europa-Universit├Ąt Flensburg, Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, and the University of Siegen.


I teach courses on economic growth, development and distribution, behavioural economics, international political economy and philosophy of economics.
