I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB), Germany. My primary research fields are labour economics, regional economics, and economic development. In my research, I focus on the connection between cognitive skills, job complexity, problem solving and labour productivity.
My current work is on
International emigrant selection on occupational skills (with Jens Ruhose, Simon Wiederhold, and Miguel Flores), forthcoming in JEEA [DOI]
Learning by problem-solving (with Peer Ederer and Ljubica Nedelkoska) [SSRN]
Stay tuned for my work-in-progress results on
Job complexity and economic growth in European regions
Fruits of the SYSTEM - a casino-based analysis of beliefs and decision-making (with Katharina Hartinger)
