I hold a PhD (2013) in economics from the University of Mannheim. During my PhD I was a visitor at the Toulouse School of Economics and a Chazen Visitor at Columbia Business School New York.
I completed my Master Degree (Diploma) in economics at the University of Mannheim. During my master studies I did internships at the German Embassy in Riga, Latvia, and at an investment bank, working in global markets with a focus on structuring derivatives of alternative investments.
