"I am a citizen of the world. The Earth is my country, and humanity is my nation."
Tawakkol Karman, Nobel Peace Laureate 2011
I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Tübingen and a Professorial Research Fellow (part time) and an Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of Adelaide. As the Professorial Research Fellow I run the European branch of the Centre for International Economic Studies (CIES) that is located in Tübingen. I am also a member of the CESifo research network and the co-organizer of the Australasian Trade Workshop.
My main research interests are in the area of international trade, multinational enterprises, foreign direct investment, tax competition and applied microeconomics.
This website is mainly about my research activities. I am also the coordinator of the Doctoral Program in Economics (DPE) at the University of Tübingen. Furthermore, I coordinate the double degree program between the University of Adelaide and the University of Tübingen that gives students from both universities the opportunity to acquire a University of Adelaide Honours degree in Economics and a University of Tübingen Master of Science degree in Economics simultaneously.
For information on these programs, please refer to the respective homepage at the University of Tübingen. Information on our teaching can be found here.
