I am a Data Scientist and Economist interested in causal inference and numerical optimization. In my research, I use experimental and quasi-experimental methods to study social influence and `nudges´.

I defended my Ph.D. thesis with the title Measures to Influence Individual Behavior: Four Essays in Economics in January 2021. I am affiliated with the Berlin School of Economics. Before my doctoral studies, I worked for an international management consultancy.
