I am an assistant professor in Economics at the University of Mannheim. I study topics on public economics and political economy, and I conduct lab and field experiments.
- I am visiting McMaster University for research from June to December 2019.

- The Coin Strategy and Charitable Giving A shorter summary: I ran a field experiment on charitable giving. 16,000 solitication letters were sent, and only one donation was received. I still like the idea and the experimental design though.
I teach Public Choice Theory in every fall semester for Bachelors, and Public Economics in every spring semester for Masters.
