About Me:

I am an Assistant Professor from Germany in the Department of Economics at Macalester College. 

My research is centered at the intersection of international trade, transportation economics, and urban economics. It empirically investigates a host of economic issues ranging from the effects of transport policy and carrier conduct on the patterns and composition of international trade to the microeconomic ramifications for trade and land values arising from weather and climate extremes, as well as noise pollution. Rooted in the synthesis of these fields, I have developed a multifaceted and cohesive research agenda that can be divided into three strands of scholarship. My primary work explores the impact of transportation costs on international markets, the resilience of international trade against natural disasters and the resulting urban labor market externalities. The second strand of my research explores the effects of transport infrastructure investments and infrastructure utilization on local economic development. Lastly, I have expanded my work on the externalities of transportation on urban environments and developed a research agenda investigating the urban equilibrium effects arising from aircraft noise pollution.
