I am an Economist and work as a Project Lead Data Analytics for the City of Winterthur. Previously, I have worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Group on Economics of Institutions led by Florian Scheuer at the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich. This is my academic website. For non-academic matters, please find me on LinkedIn.
In my academic work, I study the impact of technological change on the economy and its implications for policy. I am particularly interested in how automation, digitalization and AI affect the labor market and the distribution of income – and what this implies for the optimal design of redistributive policies. In my research, I investigate whether we should tax the robots, whether skill-biased technical change calls for more progressive income taxes or whether we should invest more in higher education.
Beyond my research, I have a broad interest in economic policy and have taught seminars on the Eurozone Crisis, the Political Economy of Globalization, and Macroeconomic Policy in the EU. I also have taught in core course on Macroeconomics and International Trade.
I obtained my PhD from the Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Tinbergen Institute in 2019. I hold an MSc in Economics from the University of Amsterdam, an MSc in Multidisciplinary Economics from the University of Utrecht, and a BSc in Economics from the University of Mannheim. I have been a Visiting Student Researcher at Stanford University. During my undergraduate studies, I also spent time at the University of Copenhagen.
