As of September 2021, I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the Technology & Policy Research Initiative at Boston University. Previously, I was a junior research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich, Germany. I am also an IZA affiliate.

I am on the job market 2022/2023.

My research focuses on the innovation strategy of firms under competition. With this, I study topics in strategic management and the economics of innovation, interlinked with topics in industrial organization, science, and human capital. In my job market paper, I analyze how the breakup of a leading firm affects an industry in terms of competition and innovation.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics with summa cum laude from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Before, I studied Economics at the University of Bonn (Master) and the University of Heidelberg (Bachelor). During the last years, I have visited Boston University’s Questrom School of Business and the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. I am a citizen of the USA and Germany and have lived and worked in four countries.
