Economist | University Lecturer
Since October 2015, I'm an Economist in the External Developments Division of the European Central Bank (ECB). Before moving to Frankfurt, I've worked in the Foreign Research Division of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (Austrian Central Bank), where I'm currently on leave.
My main responsibilites are the monitoring and analysis of current developments in the global economy, with a special focus on global trade. Additionally, I'm the country desk economist for Turkey.
Besides my work at the ECB, I'm an academic lecturer at the University of Innsbruck, the University of Liechtenstein and Vienna University of Economics & Business. Since 2009, I've taught many courses in macroeconomics, public economics, economics of european integration, monetary economics, international economics and international finance / financial markets, both at the undergraduate and graduate level.
At the beginning of 2011, I finished my PhD studies in Economics (Dr.rer.soc.oec.) at the University of Innsbruck sub auspiciis Praesidentis rei publicae, the highest possible distinction for PhD graduates in Austria. Before starting my PhD studies, I finished my master studies in Econcomics (Mag.rer.soc.oec.), International Business (Mag.rer.soc.oec.) and in Political Science (Mag.phil.), each one with distinction, in 2008. During my studies, I spent one year at the Queensland University of Technology (2007) in Brisbane, Australia. Furthermore, I attended courses and summer schools at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (2009) and the London School of Economics (2010).
