I am a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Economics and Political Science (SEPS) of the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, from where I also obtained my PhD. Prior to moving to St. Gallen, I obtained an undegraduate 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 contest theory. I am particularly interested in candidate behavior in political campaigns, transparency laws for lobbyists, violent conflict, and dynamics in tournament models.

Work in Progress (titles are tentative):
My teaching interests are in microeconomics, game theory, political economy, public economics, and managerial economics.
I am currently teaching the course Microeconomics II (BA, joint with Catherine Roux) and I give tutorials for the course Economics A (BA), both at the University of St. Gallen. For the course Economics A I wrote a book chapter 'Introduction to Game Theory' which can be found here.
