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, looking at aspects such as tax noncompliance and financial stability. 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 on the invitation of Romain Duval and Davide Furceri as well as at the University of Copenhagens Center for Economic Behaviour and Inequality at the invitation of Niels Johannesen.

Research Interests:
Public economics (tax evasion and avoidance),
International Economics (capital flows, offshore finance),
Applied Econometrics (model averaging)
