I work at the intersection between economics, law, and political science. Most of my research addresses questions in constitutional and international law & economics. My typical research fits into both the new institutional economics and political economy literature. Although the majority of my publications are empirical studies, I am also applying game theory and experimental methods.
Since 2018, I am a co-investigator in the DFG-funded research project Economics of Compliance with Constitutions (ECC) in cooperation with Warsaw University.
An up-to-date list of my publications and links to working paper repositories can be found here.
Since March 2019, I am the coordinator of the specialization in law & economics (SPB VI) at the University of Hamburg's Law School.
At the University of Hamburg, I teach the “Introduction to Economics” in the Law School’s specialization in law & economics as well as “Empirical Legal Studies” and the “Introduction to Microeconomics” in the European Master of Law & Economics (EMLE). I teach different courses on topics in law & economics in the Master in Law & Economics of the Arab Region (MLEA). At the Northern Institute of Technology Management (NIT), I teach in the module "Economics and Law".
On top of that, I frequently teach short courses and summer school courses on subjects related to my research interests and on applied empirical methods more generally.
