I am an Assistant Professor at the department of economics of the LMU Munich.
My research is focused on international capital flows and offshore finance. I currently analyze developments in the financial service sector of offshore financial centers including the facilitation of tax noncompliance. I also work on model averaging routines, specifically hybrids between Bayesian and frequentist model averaging estimators.
I received my PhD from Humboldt University and the DIW graduate center and worked at the DIW for three years during that time. I spent several months at the International Monetary Fund and visited the University of Copenhagen’s Center for Economic Behaviour and Inequality.
