I am on the 2016-2017 job market and available for interviews at the 2017 ASSA Annual Meeting in Chicago.
My primary research interests are in the field of applied microeconomics. I am interested in labor economics, economics of education and behavioral economics. My current research focuses on how peers and teachers affect student performance and specialization choices in higher education and the labor market. I am also interested in the development of cognitive skills in children.
I am currently working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Behavior and Inequality Research Institute (briq) in Bonn and I am also IZA Deputy Program Director for Behavioral and Personal Economics. I am affiliated with the Department of Economics, Maastricht University. I have studied Economics at the University of Bonn and received my PhD in economics from Maastricht University in 2014.
