About Teaching and Projects

I teach both at the School of Economics and Business and at the School of Spatial Planning at the Technical University of Dortmund. There I am responsible for the Economics education of our planning students.  I teach introductory courses on Micro as well as Macroeconomics as well as Urban and Spatial Economics. Moreover, I am involved in project-based teaching where students develop solutions for urban planning based on economic concepts. Currently, I offer projects on globalisation and human capital and the knowledge economy for undergraduates as well as postgraduates. I am also affiliated with the Ruhr Graduate School of Economics where our PhD candidates receive excellent postgraduate education.

About TU Dortmund University

Founded in 1968, Technical University Dortmund (TU) is situated in the Ruhr region of Germany. It was established at a time of decline in the country’s coal and steel industry and its emergence coincided with an economic shift away from heavy industry and towards technology. There are close to 33,000 students enrolled at TU, a figure which includes an international intake of around 11 per cent. Academic staff total more than 6,000 with 300 professors among them.

The university is organised across two campuses, the North and South campuses, located a couple of miles from downtown Dortmund. Since 1984, they have been linked by an automated hanging monorail system known as the H-Bahn that crosses the area at a height of about 50 feet.

The Mathematics Tower, home to our Economics department, is one of its most prominent buildings and is where you will find me; on the 8th floor overlooking the BVB’s football stadium.
