Andreas Leibing

PhD Candidate

DIW Berlin


Hello there!

My name is Andi, and I’m a Ph.D. candidate at DIW Berlin and the Berlin School of Economics (BSE) via FU Berlin. I’m also the Berlin Network of Labor Market Research (BeNA) COB.

My research focuses on higher education and the labor market. I am particularly interested in the economic determinants of college enrollment, completion, and institutional choice.

In the Spring Quarter of 2023, I will be visiting Stanford University (GSE).

Feel free to reach out to me anytime!
