teaching

My teaching term at HU regularly starts with a welcome address for the new bachelor students of HU´s School of Economics and Business. In this address, I cite a few books I recommend to all students of a social science. These references can be found at the start of my slides (which also contain some recommendations for how to approach life at a research university).

In terms of introductory teaching, I am responsible for HU's mandatory course on financial economics at the master level, i.e., the course "Finance Theory". This is a joint project with Beatriz Mariano. Evaluation results (pre-COVID):
2019 (n=5, post-class online evaluation),
2018
(n=45, in-class evaluation)

In addition, I am developing two new elective courses at the bachelor level. Students who want to specialize in finance will take my course "Financial Markets". In addition, I offer a course titled "Financial Economics for Citizens". This course is intended for students interested in interaction of the financial and political systems.

At the PhD level, I contribute to the core course in the finance track of the Berlin School of Economics. Moreover, I teach a topics course, with a focus on climate finance.

Together with Tim Adam, I coach a team of students in HU's (extracurricular) Portfolio Management Program.

Given that financial economics makes heavy use of math, I have a bit of experience in teaching math. I use it to run a mathematical circle for kids, together with Thoralf Klein. See our blog.

In the past, I also taught at other universities.
