I am currently holding the Jean Monnet Chair “Europe in the Global Economy” at Technische Hochschule Köln (TH Köln). I am a Professor of Economics and International Economics at TH Köln and at Maastricht School of Management. At TH Köln I direct the Institute of Global Business and Society. My major research interests are:


  • International financial integration, especially global banking
  • European (monetary) integration
  • International trade and investment
  • (The limits of) global governance
  • Green growth and the role of eco-innovations

I also have a strong interest in promoting internationalization of higher education and in innovation in academic teaching.
