Currently, I am Assistant Professor for Quantitative Macroeconomics at Leipzig University and head of the research group “Volatility, Growth and Financial Crises” at the IWH, where we analyze the link between financial crises and macroeconomic aggregates.
Lately, I focus on Bayesian inference in structural vectorautoregressive models. I also use large datasets to construct external instruments for structural shocks in empirical macroeconomic models.
