Teaching

I teach a variety of courses on macroeconomics, monetary policy, public economics, and programming in economics across different programs and regularly supervise seminar papers and theses (bachelor and master). My teaching experience includes courses in German bachelor, master, and PhD programs, as well as courses in Dutch bachelor and research master programs.

I hold the Dutch "University Teaching Qualification" which is awarded after passing a structured teaching program for faculty at Dutch universities. It includes courses on teaching, supervision, assessment, and course design. It is completed by a comprehensive portfolio where I reflect upon my teaching.

In 2023, I have been awarded a "Teaching Innovation Grant" by the Tilburg School of Economics and Management to develop a macroeconomics course bridging the gap between bachelor and master macroeconomics. The result of this generous financial support is the course "Quantitative Dynamic Macroeconomics" as shown below.
