Brief Introduction

I am a PhD student in economics at the University of Bonn. My main research interests lie in the field of econometrics and statistics, structural microeconometrics and causal inference. I feel most comfortable in the intersection between theory and implementation of methods. One topic I'd like to learn more about in particular is how to formalize the error arising when using a specific (mathematical) model, e.g. model-misspecification error, and how it affects conclusions drawn from the model. For the most part I studied economics at the University of Bonn, but I also attended some lectures and took exams in mathematics and computer science. Like many modern researchers I care a great deal about reproducibility and the open source philosophy.
