I have studied in Berlin, London, Birmingham and Nottingham and worked in Berlin, Cork, Nottingham and since 2002 here in Cardiff.

My major degree is from the Free University Berlin (Diplom (MA)). I also have a Master degree from Birmingham and am working on a PhD in Nottingham. All of them are in economics. My work experience also incorporates policy advice.

I have a wide interest in the theory of economic policy, especially monetary policy. Economics for me is applied philosophy, using scientific methods. In my opinion there is a gap to be closed between the reality of economic policymaking and theory, as well as between some non-mainstream ideas and the formalised world of the mainstream.

I teach macroeconomics amongst other things.

The hope is to finish the PhD soon and to find the right balance between teaching, research and the other aspects of life. I enjoy films, music, nature and politics. What is more important than anything else? Love! (Matthew 22:37 - 40)
