I am lecturer in Economics at University of Bayreuth in Germany.
My research broadly covers:
- Economics of Science**
esp. analysis of scientific productivity, funds, collaboration, R&D, and patenting
- Applied Network Analysis
esp. local properties, growth, influence and diffusion in networks applied to topics in economics of science, international trade, public economics, and political economics.
- Fiscal Competition
esp. tax based 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).
