I am an applied microeconomist with a strong focus on questions related to public economics, in particular in the areas of taxation and education. In my PhD thesis, I analyze behavioral responses
to personal as well as corporate income taxation - from a national and international perspective. My work in education economics focuses on the educational transition process within the German
school system. From a methodological point of view, I analyze large micro datasets using state-of-the-art microeconometric techniques. Please find a more detailed description of my research areas
in this section. For further information of our Research School of International Taxation in Tübingen, you may also click here.
