Hello, and welcome to my website.

My professional interests lie at the intersection of politics, economics and business. I am currently the first Fellow of the German Ministry of Finance, where I work on policy in the framework of the Corona Task Force and the Fiscal Policy Division.

I am also a Research Associate at Cambridge University’s Centre for Business Research (CBR) and Future World Fellow at the Centre for the Governance of Change at IE University. Furthermore, I teach Public Policy and Business at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. Previously, I occupied several visiting and associate positions at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), was John F. Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellow at Harvard University and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University.

I studied politics, economics and business at Trier University, different London universities and the University of Oxford.

I have commented on political and economic issues on major news channels such as CNBC, BBC, Sky News, Al Jazeera International, ZDF, France 24 and SBS Australia and have also been a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, DIE ZEIT, El Pais, Foreign Affairs and the New York Times.
