I am a Research Fellow in Economics at the Center for Macroeconomic Research at the University of Cologne. I am also an affiliate of the Cluster of Excellence "ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy", a joint initiative of the Universities of Bonn and Cologne. I study topics in macroeconomics with an emphasis on the implications of financial frictions for economic fluctuations and capital taxation. I also take an interest in political economy.
