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 and board member 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 the German labor market brought about by technological changes, trade and immigration.
In 2020, I was the lead organizer of „VirtualBERLIN“; the online conference that replaced the EALE-SOLE-AASLE World Conference of Labor Economists that was originally scheduled to take place in Berlin, June 25-27, 2020.
