about me


I am a Research Associate (Postdoc) at the Department of Socioeconomics, Chair of Environmental Economics, at the University of Hamburg. My research focuses on various aspects of behavioral instruments to foster climate-protection behavior. I also investigate the various reasons and factors underlying skepticism towards climate change.
I primarily use experimental and empirical methods, using R and Stata to apply statistical procedures, e.g. (non-) parametric tests, (non-) linear regression, or bayesian statistics.
I am also interested in the utilization of big data for scientific purposes, quantitative text-analysis (including sentiment analysis), machine learning (supervised and unsupervised), as well as the reproducibility of experiments in psychology and economics.
