I have extensive publication experience in top journals such as Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, International Journal of Research in Marketing, Journal of Operations Management, Journal of International Marketing, etc. As a former Associate Editor of International Marketing Review and reviewer of hundreds of papers I can provide behind-the-scenes insights into the review process.

My podcast is the no.1 podcast on Academic Writing in the German speaking community! I combine my academic knowledge with creative writing techniques to help researchers improving their writing output.

You will get hands-on with lots of helpful writing tools to improve your writing skills and speed up your writing.

You will work on your own project and make good progress on it in and between the sessions.
