Benjamin Blumenthal

Postdoctoral Researcher at ETH Zurich (D-MTEC).

I earned my PhD in Economics from the Paris School of Economics & EHESS in January 2023.

I am on the 2023-2024 Job Market!

As a political economist, I use game-theoretic methods to analyse the factors that determine the policies that politicians implement, with an emphasis on the behaviour of both policymakers and non-policymakers. The two main focal points of my research are (i) electoral accountability and transparency and (ii) political influence and interest groups.

My CV is available here.
