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. At the latter, I am responsible for the Economics education of our planning students. I have also given classes on The Economics of Arts at the University of St Gallen.

Teaching Portfolio

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 courses on globalisation , the digital economy as well as human capital and the knowledge economy for undergraduates as well as postgraduates.

PhD training

I am proud to be part of our research training group on regional disparities  which we were awarded DFG funding for in 2019.  I am also affiliated with the Ruhr Graduate School of Economics.

Where do you find me on campus?

I am affiliated with both the School of Business and Economics as well as the School of Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund. The Mathematics Tower – home to our Economics department and my chair – is one of its most prominent buildings and is where you will find me; on the 8th floor overlooking the BVB’s football stadium.

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 towards technology. There are close to 33,000 students enrolled at TU and more than 6,000 academic staff with 300 professors among them.

We are 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.
