I am a Professor of Finance at TUM School of Management Campus Heilbronn. Previously, I served as Professor of Corporate Finance at the German Graduate School of Management and Law (Heilbronn) and as Assistant Professor in Finance at the University of Mannheim where I obtained my Ph.D. in Finance. I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. I am interested in the functioning of financial markets and the behavior of financial market participants.
Areas of interest
My research is quantitative/empirically oriented and focuses mostly on asset pricing, asset management, and behavioral finance. Within these fields, I am particularly interested in the price formation process of financial markets, the investment decisions of market participants, and the impact of digitalization and sustainability on corporations and markets. My research has been published in leading finance journals (e.g., Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies).
I am currently teaching finance courses in the Master in Management (MiM), in the Master in Management & Innovation (MiMI), and in the Bachelor in Management and Technology (BMT) program at TUM. My teaching experience covers the areas of Corporate Finance, Investment and Asset Pricing, Banking, Behavioral Finance, Decision Analysis, Capital Markets as well as Investor Behavior.
In addition, I regularly supervise seminars, Bachelor and Master thesis in collaboration with my research assistants. TUM students can find a list of currently offered topics here.
