I’m focused on topics related to business, social behaviour and communication. I have completed a professional training for banking with Deutsche Bank AG, graduated in Computer Science and Business Administration at Hessische Verwaltungs- und Wirtschafts-Akademie and in Business Economics (BBA) at Avans+, Breda (NL).
I got a Master’s Degree in Leadership in Digital Communication at Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) in cooperation with the University of St. Gallen (HSG), as well as a Doctorate in Business Administration at the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham (UK). I’m a fellow of the EuroMed Academy of Business.
My research interests include eBusiness, Consumer Behaviour, Digital Economy, Decision-Making, Finance (including Behavioural Finance, International Stock Markets, Company Valuation), Forecasting, Marketing (e.g., Online Marketing, Product and Service Marketing), Social Media, Sustainability, and Teamwork.
Beyond that, I am interested in travelling and sailing. At the moment I am on a world trip with a Najad 34 sailing yacht and follow the “barefoot route”.
