I am Robert Bosch Assistant Professor for the Sustainable Use of Natural Resources in the Economics Department at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and the Frankfurt School - UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance .
Before joining the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management I held between 2011 and 2015 different positions at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim, lastly as acting head of the department Environmental and Resource Economics, Environmental Management. During this time I, inter alia, co-coordinated a large European research project on the interaction of climate- and energy policy instruments, ENTRACTE.
I hold a Ph.D. from the University Bern, where I also did my undergraduate studies.
My research focuses on environmental and energy economics. In particular, I'm interested in energy and climate policy in emerging and developing countries and the interaction between different policy instruments. I'm also interested issues at the intersection between international trade and environmental policies. My main tools to investigate these questions are analytical and numerical economic models and more and more econometric techniques.
