I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at LMU Munich. Until spring 2020, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Digital Business Initiative and the Golub Capital Social Impact Lab at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
I am interested in organizational and digital economics as well as behavioral and decision science. I am passionate about leveraging data science tools using big data, machine learning and econometric methods for research and high-impact decision-making.
Together with Susan Athey and other co-authors, I work on applications of machine learning methods for causal inference using high-dimensional data from Danish administrative records to learn about optimal targeted policies of large-scale interventions.
In collaboration with a financial technology company, my co-authors and I design and implement experiments and recommendation systems to create targeted user experiences aiming to increase charitable giving.
I am also interested in the impact of digital technologies and geographic frictions between remote teams on firms' managerial organization using data from German social security records which I study together with Anna Gumpert and Manfred Antoni.
I did my PhD in Economics at LMU Munich, my supervisors were Monika Schnitzer, Florian Englmaier, and Oliver Falck.
