About me


I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute for Macroeconomics and Econometrics at Bonn University (Germany) affiliated with the Macrohistory Lab. I received my PhD from Goethe University in Frankfurt (Germany).

I will be joining Universitat Pompeu Fabra as an assistant professor in September 2019.

My research interests are in financial economics, macro-finance and economic history. My current research focuses on booms, busts and regulation in financial markets. Most of my work is empirical, often employing long-run datasets.
