About me

Welcome to my home page. I am currently an Advanced Researcher at the Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim, Germany. Previously, I was a post-doc in the Economics & Policy Department at the Technical University of Munich. I received my Ph.D. from KU Leuven in 2021.

My research interests are in the economics of science and innovation. In on-going projects, I investigate the role of human capital, funding schemes and competition in scientific production, and how institutions affect knowledge spillovers.

I am also currently holder of an Add-on Fellowship for Interdisciplinary Economics from the Joachim Herz Foundation.
