I am Assistant Professor of Finance at Goethe University. My reasearch interests are in behavioral finance. I am particularly interested in the drivers of financial decision making of private households and in ways of improving the quality of these decision e.g., through financial education, financial advice, or decision making tools. To address these questions, I employ empirical as well as experimental methods.
