In my research I am mainly applying economic theory to study welfare implications of allocation mechanisms like auctions or platforms in two-sided economies with prices. While my research primarily focuses on high-skill labor markets, my interests extend to many other areas such as industrial organization and entrepreneurship.

I am working on questions related to specialist labor markets, bilateral coordination problems with and without prices, signaling models and reputation effects. In the past I also worked on problems arising at the intersection of game and decision theory.

During my graduate studies at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University I taught sessions for various classes in Economics, Statistics and Strategy at the undergraduate, graduate, MBA and executive level. Currently I am teaching the Business Strategy core module for 2-year, Accelarated and Tech MBAs at the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.

Before receiving my Ph.D. in Managerial Economics and Strategy from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in 2016, I got myself Master’s degrees in Managerial Economics from Northwestern University and in Economics from the Vienna Institute of Advanced Studies (IHS).
