Robert Lehmann


I am a German economist and CESifo Affiliate with business cycle forecasting as my main research topic. After finishing my Doctoral Thesis (Dr. rer. pol., German PhD equivalent) in 2015, I am currently working as a Post-Doc Researcher at the ifo Institute in Munich.

 

Besides doing research on questions concerning economic forecasting, I am interested in macroeconomics, political economy and migration. From a methodological point of view, I am familiar with time series analysis, spatial and panel econometrics.

 

With my website I want to keep you informed on my future, current and past research. If you are interested in my research or in cooperations, please feel free to contact me.
