Andreas Leibing

Ph.D. Candidate

DIW Berlin


Hello there!

My name is Andreas, and I’m a Ph.D. candidate at DIW Berlin and the Berlin School of Economics (BSoE) via FU Berlin. I’m Chair of the Berlin Network of Labor Market Research (BeNA) Board and was a visiting scholar at Stanford University.

My research focuses on human capital investment and the labor market. I want to understand how economic conditions affect the (expected) returns to more general vs. more applied skills.

I was on the 2023/2024 job market. Here’s my Job Market Paper. There will be job updates soon.
