Welcome to the homepage of the Research Group on Finance and Information Management at the Institute of Materials Resource Management (MRM)


My colleagues and I deal with a wide range of research topics concerning commodity finance, corporate finance, and capital markets. These topics are addressed in various ways using quantitative methods and information-based approaches, also incorporating economic, sustainability, and social aspects.

As our major field of research, we focus on how commodity markets work, and which drivers and factors affect them. Also questions regarding information efficiency in commodity markets and the implications of commodity trading on society and companies represent a particularly important part of our research.


These topics are also integrated in our teaching within various courses, seminars, and theses offered to students of different study programs.


I look forward to lively discussions on our topics in research and teaching.
