I am lecturer in Economics at University of Bayreuth in Germany.
My research broadly covers:
- Economics of Science**
(esp. analysis of scientific productivity and collaboration networks; R&D and patenting)
- Applied Network Analysis
(esp. in international trade and in political econ.)
- Fiscal Competition
(esp. location choice of firms and individuals)
(For more detail on these topics, please click on Research in the left pane)
** The economics of science aims to understand the impact of science on the advance of technology, to explain the behavior of scientists, and to understand the efficiency or inefficiency of scientific institutions. (The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, 2008).
