I am a researcher in Econometrics, Macroeconomics and Statistics and currently lead a research group, funded by the DFG, at the University Münster. My research interests include quantitative macroeconomics, econometrics and time series analysis with a focus on the methodological development of Frequentist and Bayesian identification and estimation methods for dynamic and stochastic models with time-varying risks and rare disasters. I have taught classes at all levels in DSGE Models, Econometrics, Empirical Methods, Macroeconomics, Statistics as well as Software courses in R, MATLAB, and Dynare.
I am a Linux and open-source enthusiast and actively contribute to several projects (such as Dynare) to make my research results and developed methods accessible to practitioners and policy makers.
