The staff members are active within the international research community and publish regularly in reputable academic journals. The research in particular is oriented towards applied econometric analyses in areas such as educational economics, financial economics, labour economics, public economics and urban economics. We also do strong theoretical work on development economics, environmental economics, macroeconomics, and political economy.
