Greetings, and welcome to my website!
My name is Max and I am a graduate student of economics at the University of Cologne. I am interested in microeconomics, econometrics and applied math. I earned my bachelor’s degree at the University of Cologne where I graduated summa cum laude after four semesters of study.
I am also a student research assistant and teaching assistant for statistics.
My main pastime is programming and using computers to perform various tasks, increasingly overlapping with my interest in economics: For example, my undergraduate thesis made extensive use of simulations. I am a proud GNU/Linux user (and have been since 2005) and free software evangelist. My preferred programming languages are C and R. I also enjoy growing orchids.
