Introduction

Hi, I'm Mirko! I'm currently working and teaching for the Fraunhofer FIT in the areas of econometrics, microsimulation and data science. I am always looking for interesting opportunities and offer freelance consulting services. As a side job I make video games.

Economics & Statistics

Microsimulation

I am currently working as post-doctoral researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology, for which I have developed a microsimulation model which can accurately simulate the static effects of changes in the tax code for all German companies. The model is under continuous development and widely used by the German federal government to estimate the impact of intended tax reforms.

Data Analysis and Visualization

Since 2016 I am teaching lab courses and lectures about data analysis and visualization for students of the University of Bonn and the RWTH Aachen. Topics include regression analysis, clustering, text analysis and methods for static and interactive data visualisation.

Data Analysis Consulting

Companies who manage to gather, process and analyse the abundance of data generated by today's digital world have a tremendous edge over their competition. I offer freelance consulting services aimed at small and mid-sized companies who are interested in learning about, exploring and leveraging the vast potential of their data. I provide theoretical expertise and applied experience in regression analysis, machine learning, data mining, clustering and text analysis. Typical applications include customer behavior prediction, market analysis and data-driven process and product improvement.
