Arnd Heinrich Klein

I am a competition/antitrust economist. From 2015 to 2017, I worked for the Swiss Competition Authority (COMCO), where I focused on cases in the media, advertising and telecommunications industries. My duties ranged from the assessment of mergers to the investigation of collusion and abuse of dominance. I was both responsible for economic analyses, such as defining relevant markets and quantifying anti-competitive conduct, as well as for handling cases and coping with the related legal issues. Furthermore, I contributed to the strategic development of the authority's economic practice.

I also teach classes on competition policy and industrial organization (BA and MA) at the University of Zurich on a regular basis. In my free time, I work on research projects in the fields of IO and experimental economics.

I hold a PhD in economics from the University of Zurich and studied at UC Berkeley (Visiting Scholar), University of Konstanz (Diplom-Volkswirt) and University of Oregon (MSc). The focus of my academic training lies on applied microeconomics (both theory and empirical methods). I recently published the first essay of my dissertation in the John Nash Memorial Special Issue of Games and Economic Behavior.
