I completed my PhD in Economics at the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance and the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. I mainly worked on game theory but also analysed data on bargaining and simulated protest propagation in social networks.

I received my Master's degree from Stockholm University, where I analysed time series and modelled income inequality and technological change.

Work in Progress

Proximity-based, Model-agnostic Effect Interpretation
I'm developing a way to interpret the estimated effect of a variable in any (blackbox) model.


Conflict between Non-exclusive Groups
How do conflicts in society play out when people are members of more than one group (e.g. poor and urban)? To answer this question, I develop a new theoretical model.

An Empirical Analysis of Insistent Bargaining (with Marco Serena)
We analyse 25M bargaining interactions on eBay and show that insistence appears to be sticky, exploitative, and vengeful.

Contest Copycats: Adversarial Duplication of Effort in Contests
I introduce a contest model in which players can spy on opponents and copy their effort. Protecting more productive players may hurt their winning chances.

Master's Thesis

Income Inequality, Unemployment and Technological Change (2017)
I combine labour markets with frictions and an aggregate production function including “computer capital” that is a substitute for low-skill and a complement for high-skill workers. This allows me to explain different developments in unemployment and income inequality in developed countries.
