I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Mannheim and Head of the Research Group "Social Policy and Redistribution" at the ZEW-Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research.

My research is on the intersection of Public, Labor and Urban Economics. I am currently studying the effects of local business and property taxes on various labor market outcomes, such as wages, employment and rents.

My work has been published in the American Economic Review, the Journal of Public Economics and the European Economic Review among others. You can find links to my current papers in the Research Section.
