I am Chair of Economics at ULMS. Prior to joining the University of Liverpool, I worked at EBS Business School near Wiesbaden (Germany) from 2006 to 2013, where I held the Chair of Law and Economics, and served as the Head of Department for Economics for seven years.
Following studies of Economics at the University of Mannheim in Germany, I did my Ph.D. at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. My first appointment as Assistant professor was at the University of Toronto (Canada). I received tenure from the University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada) in 1996 before returning to Germany where I held the Walther Rathenau Chair of Organization at the Humboldt University in Berlin from 2000 to 2006.
