I am an applied economist based at Bonn University’s Department of Economics. My research interests revolve around modelling the life-cycle behaviour of households and informing public policy aiming to reduce inequality. The methods I use involve heavy use of modern computing infrastructure; my teaching is focused on conveying some of the relevant economic, econometric, and computational techniques to graduate students.

Once empirical and / or computational projects move beyond trivial examples, maintaining reproducibility of results becomes a challenge. Despite some recent efforts in the profession, most research does not live up to reasonable standards. I have started to create some software that aims to make it easier for researchers to meet the challenge.
