Welcome to my website!

I am a fourth-year doctoral student in economics at the University of Cologne, specializing in the underpinnings of freedom and autonomy. My research uses experimental and survey methods in the fields of public policy and political economy. I seek to address questions such as:

  1. When do we respect others’ choices?
  2. How do policymakers use asymmetric information when intervening in others’ choices?
  3. How do the mental models of policymakers manifest in policy?

Since August 2023, I am Oskar Morgenstern Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

As the lab manager of the Cologne Laboratory for Economic Research, one of the largest and most advanced experimental economics laboratories, I help create and support a robust IT infrastructure for other scientists.

Among other things, I developed otree_slider and alter_ego. Feel free to contact me. I’m always happy to chat!
