Here you find my research output from the time when I used to be a behavioral scientist. Currently, I am CEO of Education Y - a German charity organization for education equity. Before, I was head of Corporate Development at BARMER health insurance and held academic positions at the University of Cologne and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, and worked at the University of Chicago as a Fulbright scholar. My research interest lies in human behavior in organizations and org & people analytics.
