Welcome to my personal webpage,

I am an applied macroeconomist working in the fields of monetary policy, inflation, and business cycle analysis. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Leipzig University in Germany.

In my dissertation, I have worked on the impact of non-clearing goods markets on inflation, productivity, and monetary policy. Recently, my work concentrates on monetary policy effectiveness in non-clearing goods markets and capacity utilization as a monetary policy target.
