I am an economist and a professional forecaster for RWI – Leibniz Institute of Economic Research in Essen, Germany at the division Macroeconomics and Public Finance.

I am part of the junior faculty of the Ruhr Graduate School of Economics and a research fellow of DocMA - an interdisciplinary research project in which algorithms process huge amounts of newspaper articles and texts of social media in order to recognize patterns.

On this page you will find my research, forecasts, replication codes, and previous teaching materials.
