Personal profile

Research interests

I conduct research on economic and societal consequences of taxation and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) regulation. In particular, I investigate consequences of taxing cross-border economic activities, tax incentives of loss-making firms, and how taxes and tariffs affect transfer prices within firms. Moreover, I conduct research on corporate social responsibility reporting of public and private companies. My research has been published in internationally peer reviewed journals such the Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of international Business Studies, and the Journal of Business, Finance and Accounting.


I have teaching experience at the undergraduate and master level in integrated measurement and reporting, financial accounting, and taxation. Currently, I teach and coordinate the master elective 'Taxation' and the bachelor course ‘Financial and Tax Consulting’ at RSM.


Next to my research and teaching activities, I serve as a reviewer for many internationally peer reviewed journals, an editorial board member of Accounting and Business Research and a guest editor for Accounting in Europe. I obtained my PhD from Vienna University of Economics and Business. For my PhD thesis on Financial Reporting and Taxation, I received the Award “Nürnberger Steuergespräche” (awarded by the tax advisors association in Nuremberg).
