I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Oxford.

As a Macroeconomist, I am particularly interested in the topics of Expectations and Belief Formation, Monetary Policy Communication, and Information Choice. In my research, I combine theory and evidence, making use of a wide array of methods, including Macroeconomic Lab and Survey Experiments and Machine Learning (e.g. for Textual Analysis). 

Previously, I have worked at the ECB's Research Department and at the Deutsche Bundesbank.
