Find my latest re­search at SSRN.


Be­fore pur­su­ing a PhD de­gree at VGSF, I ac­quired basic quant­it­at­ive and fin­an­cial know­ledge throughout my bach­elor de­gree at the Uni­versity of Man­nheim. Since I be­came more in­ter­ested into fin­ance re­search, I de­cided to en­hance my re­search and cod­ing skills by earn­ing a mas­ter de­gree in fin­ance from the Uni­versity of Man­nheim. Two semester abroad – one at the Uni­versity of Ed­in­burgh and one at the Nor­we­gian School of Eco­nom­ics (NHH) – con­trib­uted to my in­ter­cul­tural and team­work skills.

The re­search throughout my mas­ter thesis mo­tiv­ated me to be­come a re­search stu­dent at the Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance (VGSF). Par­tic­u­larly, I ana­lyze risk factors in stock mar­kets and the re­la­tion­ship between tech­no­lo­gical in­nov­a­tions and as­set prices. 

Dur­ing my spare time, I like to hike in the moun­tains, travel and en­joy time with friends.
