In 2020, my Habilitation thesis was approved by Otto-Friedrich-University of Bamberg.

In 2014, I received my doctoral degree (Dr. rer. pol.) from Chemnitz University of Technology

My research focuses on the interrelation between fiscal policy, business cycles, inequality, the environment and consumer behavior.
