I am an Associate Professor in Health Management at the University of Cologne in the Department of Business Administration and Health Care Management.
My research focuses on incentives and the interaction of participants in health care markets. More specifically, I am interested in how monetary and non-monetary incentives and social and economic preferences affect health behaviors and physician decision making. My research has been published in international outlets such as Management Science, the Journal of Health Economics, Health Economics, Medical Decision Making, and Social Science and Medicine.
In 2011, I obtained a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Bonn under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Reinhard Selten. Over the last years, I held visiting positions at Boston University and the University of Oslo. Besides academia, I advised multinational clients while being employed at Simon-Kucher & Partners, a leading pricing and strategy consultancy, between 2011 and 2013 and I worked on competition and health policy issues during internships at the European Commission and the Federal Ministry of Health.
Currently, I am principal investigator at the Excellence Center for Social and Economic Behavior (C-SEB) and a board member of the interdisciplinary Center for Health Services Research Cologne (ZVFK) at the University of Cologne. Also, I am heading the working group “Allokation & Verteilung” of the German Health Economics Association (dggö), and I am a co-founder and a member of the management board of the Behavioral Experiments in Health Network.
