I am a Professor of Finance & Banking at Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) in Munich, Germany.

My research is mostly empirical and focuses on areas of corporate finance, banking, valuation, and capital markets.

I am also acting as a publicly certified expert („Sachverst√§ndiger“) for „Securities and Derivatives, Exchanges“ at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK M√ľnchen/Oberbayern).
