Combining qualitative and data-driven analysis, I strive to generate forward-looking insights for decision makers in public administrations and private corporations.

Systemic Economic Analysis


I am specialised in the analysis of network industries that are driven by long-term investment horizons, complex regulatory regimes, and rapid technological change.


I have worked in-depth on electricity and natural gas markets as well as on infrastructure investments and sustainable finance.

My work focuses on devising analytical tools that help make sense of complex processes at the intersection of regulation and markets. I enjoy tackling intricate economic challenges that require a combination of data analysis, data modelling, and the understanding of market processes and regulatory incentives.

In my work I combine the analytical tools of economics, social psychology, and political science with the more practical methods of design thinking and strategic foresight.
