The problems we study as scientists demand it to ignore dividing lines between academic disciplines in the first place and only later try to understand them.
At LML I am collaborating with Alex Adamou, Yonatan Berman, Ole Peters and others and seek to contribute to the Ergodicity Economics Project. During my DAAD PRIME time I am a member of the interdisciplinary group of Jürgen Jost at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in Sciences and Max-Konstantin von Renesse’s group at the Institute of Mathematics at Leipzig University.
My DAAD PRIME project is a follow-up from my PhD thesis and deals with the handling of a form of Knightian uncertainty with tools from Ergodicity Economics — more specifically in the framework of repeated gambles with uncertain parameters.
I received a PhD in economics for a thesis on The Ergodicity Problem in Economics — The Advent of Ergodicity Economics from TU Dresden. I hold a diploma from Leipzig University in business & information systems. In 2017 I attended the Santa Fe Institute Complexity Science Summer School, and in 2011 spent a semester abroad at ETH Zurich as a guest of the Chair of Systems Design to immerse myself mainly in research in econophysics.
Further interests encompass proper handling of random variables & stochastic processes, complexity science, history & philosophy of economics/physics/mathematics and I am fascinated by the range of Benoît B. Mandelbrot’s work, which led me beyond my initial disciplinary boundaries.
