About me

Research Interests

My current research focuses on various aspects of climate finance and environmental economics. I am keen to investigate how climate change affects financial markets and the real economy. In particular, I analyze how carbon taxation triggers the transition towards a low carbon economy and how it changes the investment behavior of market participants towards more sustainable investment opportunities such as ESG funds. My research is thus closely related to asset pricing and consumption-portfolio choice. I also study dynamic asset allocation and optimal insurance demand of private households in the presence of adversity (e.g., biometric risk, climate risk, transaction costs, incomplete markets). Besides I enjoy developing new solution methods for (some of) these problems.
