Chris­toph gradu­ated in Eco­nom­ics from the Uni­versity of Vi­enna in 2015. His re­search in­terests fo­cus on the eco­nom­ics of tech­no­lo­gical in­nov­a­tions in the fin­an­cial in­dustry. He re­cently re­leased a pa­per that shows how block­chain-­based set­tle­ment may in­tro­duce lim­its to ar­bit­rage in cross-­mar­ket trad­ing. In an­other pa­per, he ana­lyzes how con­sumers re­act to the avail­ab­il­ity of over­draft fa­cil­it­ies through mobile bank­ing apps. He cur­rently in­vestig­ate the po­ten­tial of crowd­fund­ing mech­an­isms to eli­cit de­mand in­form­a­tion and im­prove the screen­ing of vi­able pro­jects.

Be­fore start­ing his PhD stud­ies, Chris­toph was a re­search assist­ant in the field of labor eco­nom­ics at the In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Stud­ies and an in­tern at Ithuba Cap­ital and the Aus­trian Fin­an­cial Mar­ket Au­thor­ity.
