Karoline Bax, Ph.D.


Technical University of Munich


I am a passionate and driven researcher working in the field sustainable and climate finance.  


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. Recently, I have received my Ph.D. from the University of Trento, Italy. Prior I received a B.Sc. in General Management and M.Sc. in Finance from the EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht, Germany.

I have been engaged in numerous projects examining different aspects of assets with specific ESG ratings.  The ultimate goal of my previous research was to determine whether assets with comparable ESG scores share common risk characteristics and contributions to systemic risk and possible spillovers, which can then be reliably applied in asset pricing, risk management and portfolio analysis. 


I recently presented at the CFE-CMStatistics Conference 2023 and the 33rd European Financial Management Association (EFMA) 2024.
