My Research

Dissertation: Essays in Economic Theory

"The main project of my thesis is about communication and learning: I study the question how to effectively acquire and transmit information to a biased decision-maker. My work is of theoretical nature, but can be applied to several real-world situations like the communication strategy of central banks or advice by consulting services. For instance, limited access to information can increase the advisor’s credibility and thus improve communication between the advisor and the decision-maker. However, transparency about the advisor’s information sources always benefits both parties."

My Future

"Since I enjoyed my time at the BGSE and in academia so much, I decided to continue my career as a researcher in the UK: First, I will do a postdoc at the University of Oxford before joining the University of Manchester as a lecturer."
