I am an Assistant Professor in Environmental Economics at the Department of Economics at the University of Hamburg since May 2018. 

Previously, I completed my PhD in Quantitative Economics on "Essays in Sustainability Economics" at Kiel University in 2017. Before that I obtained an MSc in Environmental Economics and Climate Change from the London School of Economics and a BSc in International Economics from the University of Tübingen.

My research focuses on issues of 
  • social discounting, 
  • environmental valuation, 
  • economic distribution and inequality, 
  • project evaluation, 
  • sustainability science,
  • moral behaviour, and
  • behavioural economics of science.
I gratefully acknowledge funding from the German Ministry of Education and Research, the German National Academic Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service, the German-American Fulbright Commission, the Tübingen School for Sustainability, as well as the Department of Geography and Environment and STICERD at the LSE.
