Hans-Martin von Gaudecker

I am a Professor of Applied Microeconomics in the Department of Economics of the University of Bonn. I am also a team leader at IZA and a research fellow at the Reinhard Selten Institute, CESifo, Netspar, and the Munich Center for the Economics of Aging. Here is my CV and Google Scholar profile.

My research interests revolve around modelling the life-cycle behaviour of households and informing public policy aiming to reduce inequality. The methods I use involve heavy use of modern computing infrastructure; maintaining reproducibility of results becomes a challenge in such and other circumstances. Despite some recent efforts in the profession, most research does not live up to reasonable standards. I have created some software that aims to make it easier for researchers to meet the challenge. My teaching is focused on conveying the economics alongside econometric and computational techniques . If you are a student in our BSc or MSc programmes and think about writing your thesis with me, please have a look here.
