I have joined CBS as an Associate Professor for Business History in 2008. Before, I have earned my PhD (Dr. phil.) at University of Bielefeld (1999) and I have been researching and teaching at the Institute of Economic and Social History, University of Cologne.

I am interested in Business and Economic History; my current research relates to the micro-foundation of economic development (project: The Genesis of a »New Economy« - Capital, Knowledge, Technology, and Labour in Early Industrialization), to Corporate Governance and Corporate Response to Crises.

Furthermore, I am co-editor of the ‘Scandinavian Economic History Review’, member of the council of the Europian Business History Association (2013-2016) and the coordinator of the The Alliance of Centres for Business History in Europe.
