I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of St. Gallen’s SEPS-HSG. Before joining the University of St. Gallen, I was a Visiting Researcher at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Faculty for Business and Economics, University of Basel and a postdoctoral guest researcher at the CABDyN Complexity Centre, University of Oxford.

My primary research interests lie at the intersection of quantitative political economics, (online) media economics, and data science. Methodologically, I am interested in the web as a large-scale data source.

In addition to my research, I have designed several new courses at the intersection of data science and applied econometrics (Big Data Analytics, Introduction to Web Mining, Data Handling). I have been honored for excellence in teaching at the school and university level.
