I am a postdoctoral researcher at the ifo Institute in Munich and research affiliate of the CESifo Research Network. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the Technische Universität Dresden.
I contribute to the quarterly economic projections of the ifo Institute and the Joint Economic Forecast commissioned by the federal government of Germany.
My colleagues and I developed an automated model to forecast current GDP growth of Germany. Up to date forecasts can be accessed here.
My research activities mainly focus on applied macroeconometrics:
Business Cycle Analysis
Now- and Forecasting (with special emphasis on industries and regions)
Long-run Economic Growth
