Sebastian Wichert

Welcome to my website!

I am an Economist and Deputy Director of the ifo Center for Industrial Organization and New Technologies , working at the LMU-ifo Economics & Business Data Center (EBDC). Moreover I am a member of the Junior Faculty of the Department of Economics of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the LMU Open Science Center in Munich, Germany.

My research interests cover health economics, digitization&innovation and economic history. Furthermore I like to work with and combine all kind of data sources for my projects. Most recently I have helped to establish the ifo-N26-Economic Monitor, an innovative plattform to track the financial health of consumers in Europe during the Corona pandemic and beyond.
