I am a PhD candidate in economics at TU Dresden and in March 2019 submitted my thesis on The Ergodicity Problem in Economics — The Advent of Ergodicity Economics. I hold a diploma from Leipzig University in business & information systems. In 2011 I spent a semester abroad at ETH Zurich as guest of the Chair of Systems Design and attended mainly econophysics lectures and research seminars. I am joining LML to further develop the Ergodicity Economics Project through collaborations with Alex Adamou, Ole Peters, Yonatan Berman and others. A follow-up project from my PhD thesis deals with the study of repeated gambles with uncertain parameters.
My main research interest is on non-ergodicity and its consequences for economics and finance. Further interests encompass proper handling of random variables & stochastic processes, complexity science, history & philosophy of economic thought, physics and mathematics and I am fascinated by the range of Benoît B. Mandelbrot’s work.
