I am an applied economist (PhD University of Munich) interested in innovation, intellectual property, digitization and the industrial organization of media markets. My research is empirical, mainly using secondary data from surveys, clickstream data, and data collected from the web, including Twitter and YouTube. I am currently post-doc at the University of Zurich, Switzerland and will join Catolica Lisbon as an Assistant Professor in September 2017.

With colleagues at LMU Munich, I run the Internet Observatory project.
