I am an economist by education with a doctorate in Economics from the University of Tuebingen, Germany, and an MSc in Economics from the London School of Economics. After two years in equity portfolio management, I have rejoined academia, with a research focus in Finance and Economics. Prior to joining the University of Stirling in 2010, I worked at the Department of Management and Applied Microeconomics at Goethe University Frankfurt.
At the University of Stirling, I am currently Programme Director for the MSc International Accounting and Finance as well as Undergraduate Honours Year Coordinator. I am also a member of the Research programme Contextual Learning in Humans and Machines, as part of which I am collaborating with FinTech company Bambu, a Singapore-based robo-advisory solutions provider.
