I am a research fellow in economics at the Heidelberg University and a late-stage PhD candidate in economics at the University of Oslo that will be on the coming job market. As a PhD candidate, I have presented at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and visited the London School of Economics and Northwestern University.
My research interests are within welfare economics, resource and environmental economics, and game theory. My current work is on whether altruism for future generations can be inferred from the market.
