Welcome to Frank Stähler's website.

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Tübingen and an Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of Adelaide. I am also the co-organizer of the Australasian Trade Workshop. and the organizer of the Adelaide PhD Summer Institute. Furthermore, I am a member of the CESifo research network and an external affiliate member of the Norwegian Centre for Taxation (NoCeT).

My main research interests are in the area of international trade, multinational enterprises, foreign direct investment, tax competition and applied microeconomics.

This website is mainly about my research activities. I am also the coordinator of the Doctoral Program in Economics (DPE) at the University of Tübingen. Furthermore, I coordinate the double degree program between the University of Adelaide and the University of Tübingen that gives students the opportunity to acquire a University of Adelaide Honours degree in Economics and a University of Tübingen Master of Science degree in Economics simultaneously.
