Ph.D. Candidate

DIW Berlin

Hello there!

My name is Andreas, and I’m a Ph.D. candidate at the Berlin School of Economics (BSoE) via FU Berlin. I work as a research associate at DIW Berlin and TU Dresden, where I will be a postdoctoral researcher starting in October 2024.

I’m an applied microeconomist specializing in labor economics and the economics of education. I combine quasi-experimental methods, large-scale data, and economic theory to understand the determinants and consequences of general vs. applied human capital investments.
