After a temporary 4-year adventure in the world of becoming a high-school teacher for mathematics / economics, business and law, as well as anglistics, I finally decided that “pure” economics, in particular behavioral and experimental economics, is what I wanted to put all my energy in. I completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s progamme at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and moved to Innsbruck for my PhD afterwards. For me, it combines everything a perfect job offers: the (partial) freedom to work on topics that fascinate me, a high degree of flexibility, and the opportunity to travel, meet, and most of all learn from brilliant, open-minded and fascinating fellow economists in all stages of their careers.

As of today, I have been able to do several research visits, been awarded a first grant for conducting experimental sessions (together with Christoph Huber, University of Innsbruck), and present my work at several workshops and conferences.

I am grateful to all the people I met on the way so far, and a not so small number of particular people for their support, very honest words, and in particular all the “little” things.
