About me

I am an assistant professor (tenure track) of economics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Prior to moving to St. Gallen, I obtained an undergraduate degree in economics (Diplom-Volkswirt, equivalent to MSc economics) from Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany. My current research is mainly in the field of political economy
and the theory of contests and tournamentes. I am particularly interested in theoretical models of political competition with a focus of political campaigning. Apart from that I am also interested in dynamics in tournament models, the theory of violent conflict, and the implications of social psychology for microeconomic behavior.
