I am teaching Political Economy for master's students and Quantitative Economic History for bachelor students at the University of Vienna. In the past I have been a graduate teaching assistant of Applied Econometrics and Economic Growth at the University of Lausanne.
Political Economy (MA)
The aim of this course is to understand citizens’ participation and voting decisions, how policy decisions are made, what shapes the incentives and constraints of the policymakers taking those decisions, and how conflicts over policy are resolved. The course covers both theoretical and empirical research. The first part of the course introduces on political competition and voter behavior. The second part is centered on citizens’ participation. The last part focuses on the political economy of mass media.
Quantitative Economic History (BA)
The aim of this course is to introduce the measures used in long-run applied economic history, their theoretical underpinnings, and their implications in empirical research. The course covers both theoretical and empirical research. The first part of the course focuses on stylized facts and proposes a theoretical framework that generates predictions in line with these facts. The second part focuses on empirical research in economic history and the implications theory has on estimation. The last part consists of student presentations.
