I am an applied microeconomist currently employed as a Full Professor (non-tenured, W3-Lehrstuhlvertretung) at LMU Munich.
My research covers topics from Labor and Organizational Economics, Political Economy, Environmental Economics, and Economic Decision-Making, more generally.
I combine different empirical approaches and data analysis techniques with experimental methods in the lab, online and in the field.
I am particularly interested in sustainable organizational structures in dynamic decision environments. As Digitization and Data Science have changed working environments, I seek to particularly understand how such changes shape optimal incentives, leadership structures, and decision rules within groups, firms, or institutions (taking individual preferences, norms, and behavioral biases into account).
Further, I conduct evaluation studies in cooperation with business partners using modern data analytics tools.
"Time Pressure and Regret in Sequential Search" (with Felix Klimm, Martin Kocher, and Timm Opitz) is now forthcoming at the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization and "Cross-Game Learning and Cognitive Ability in Auctions" (with Thomas Giebe, Martin Kocher, and Radosveta Ivanova-Stenzel) was accepted at Experimental Economics.
I am happy to give a keynote on "Data Science & Economic Behavior: How evidence-based decision making can improve business outcomes" at the Analytics & Sustainability Summit (s-peers, SAP, DSAG) on Oct 27!
The German Research Foundation (DFG) decided to continue funding the collaborative research center CRC TRR 190 "Rationality and Competition" . I am looking very much forward continuing the productive work in Project A04 as PI together with Jana Friedrichsen and Radosveta Ivanova-Stenzel
