Personal data

Short description
My research focuses on quantitative environmental and energy economics. Questions about the preferences of the population for energy policy measures or the effects of energy and climate policy on households and firms are in the foreground. For my analyses, I particularly use microeconomic data of households and firms (official statistics (e.g. EVS, AFiD), panel studies (e.g. SOEP, KHPS) or own surveys).
