About me

I am an Assistant Professor in International Macroeconomics at the University of Tuebingen. My research interests include quantitative macroeconomics and econometrics with a focus on developing identification and estimation methods for dynamic and stochastic models with skewed distributions and rare disasters.

I am a member of Dynare’s core development team and maintain the identification and method-of-moments toolboxes. You are highly encouraged to check out my Dynare Teaching Materials and courses on Computational Macroeconomics and Quantitative Macroeconomics.

Feel free to contact me directly or to schedule an appointment.
