Nils Braakmann

Welcome to my page.

I'm a Professor of Economics at Newcastle University. My work focuses on empirical microeconomics, typically using large-scale datasets and microeconometric techniques to investigate questions mainly drawn from labour economics, the economics of crime, health economics, international economics and urban economics. I am also currently Deputy Head of the Economics Group. I joined Newcastle University in September 2010, first as a Lecturer until 2013, from then as Senior Lecturer until July 2017 and from August 2017 to April 2018 as Reader in Labour Economics. Before coming to England I was a PostDoc in Economics at Leuphana University Lueneburg, Germany, where I also completed my doctoral degree in Economics in 2009 as well as Master's degrees in Business and Economic and Social Sciences.

See my current CV for details. Enjoy your stay.
