I am an applied Economist and obtained my PhD at the London School of Economics in 2022. Currently, I am working as an Applied Scientist at Zalando SE focussing on topics related to Causal Inference & Pricing.

My fields of academic research are Development Economics, Urban Economics and Political Economy, with a focus on how the interactions between geographical and environmental factors and political processes shape local economic development. My research has a strong quantitative empirical emphasis and seeks to draw causal conclusion from quasi-experimental settings. It is characterized by combining state-of-the-art techniques in applied econometrics and machine learning with newly available data sources such as satellite images to overcome data constraints and focus on new and innovative research questions.
