I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Münster, and a visiting research associate at the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2020 EEA and 2021 ASSA Virtual Annual Meetings.

You can contact me here and find my CV here. My job market package and other research papers are listed below.

I study topics at the intersection of public finance and behavioral economics, with applications to consumer policy and environmental regulation. Most of my research uses field experiments to identify structural parameters in economic choice theory and derive implications for optimal policy.

Many of these projects have been conducted in collaboration with firms, in markets such as ride sharing, delivery services, online retailing, energy supply, and carbon offsetting.
