Welcome to my home page!

I am a Professor of Economics at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany, a research associate at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Nuremberg, and at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn. In addition, I am a principal investigator of the Collaborative Research Center/TransRegio “Rationality and Competition“, funded by the German Sciences Foundation.

My research interests are in Applied Microeconomics, in particular Labor Economics. My research focuses on understanding the challenges for workers brought about by technological changes, trade and immigration.
