Yero Samuel Ndiaye


I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Cologne and a kickboxer in the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB).

In my research, I am interested in understanding credence goods markets, particularly health care markets, financial markets, and market design more broadly. I employ both modern and classical statistical methods , particularly machine learning, and experimental methods. I am deeply tied to my native city of Cologne and the University of Cologne where I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees in Economics. I also hold a master's degree in Statistics from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I have been passionately competing in kickboxing for almost a decade. I am currently ranked number one in the world in my weight class and have won five World Cups. It is my distinct privilege to be athlete spokesman for the German kickboxers.
