Dr. Klaus Gründler


I am Deputy Head of the Center for Public Finance and Political Economy at the ifo Institute in Munich, member of the Junior Faculty of the LMU Munich, and CESifo Research Affiliate.

My research focus is on macroeconomics, public economics, applied econometrics & data science.

I am also the Intermediary of the Public Economics Area of the CESifo Network and was a professional musician for 17 years (and keep on touring occasionally).

According to RePEc, I rank among the Top-200 young economists worldwide (Top-1%) and and among the Top-10% of all authors.
