I am doing theoretical and empirical research in international economics and labor economics. In particular, I investigate the impact of globalization and/or automation on individual workers, firm performance and their internal organization, and aggregate implications, e.g. welfare and economy wide inequality.

I currently teach Macroeconomics for Bachelor students. Beside that I have experience in teaching courses for BA and MA students in international trade and (international) macroeconomics, labor economics and different topics (e.g. refugee migration) through seminars. 

Moreover, I supervise students at all levels, including PhD, on topics in International Economics and Labor Economics.
