I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Pomona College in California. Prior to that, I spent two years at New York University as a postdoctoral fellow. I received an MA in Philosophy & Economics from the University of Bayreuth in 2012 and a PhD in Economics from the University of Freiburg in 2018.

My research lies at the intersection of behavioral economics, political economy, and philosophy of economics. I use a combination of mathematical, experimental, and philosophical methods to analyze decision-making and individual welfare in market and political processes. In doing so, I follow Elinor Ostrom’s maxim that the use of multiple methods is often the most powerful way to study complex social issues.
