New Assistant Professor: Andreas Müller
Andreas Müller has just joined the department as an Assistant Professor now in September. He is going to work with Vidar Christiansen and the rest of the Oslo Fiscal Studies’ research team, as well as with Kjetil Storesletten on MACROINEQUALITY.
Andreas earned his master’s degree at the University of Zurich. He wrote his PhD thesis on Dynamic Macroeconomics and Public Finance at the same university under the supervision of Fabrizio Zilibotti, before joining our department.
– I chose to join your department because it offers an excellent research and living environment for young researchers, says Andreas.
Andreas’ main research interests are Macroeconomics and Public Finance, Economic Growth and Development, and Political Economy.
The new Assistant Professor is going to divide his working time between Oslo Fiscal Studies and Storesletten’s MACROINEQUALITY-project.
In the latter project he is currently working on a positive theory of how political shocks to the ideology of the governments shape the cross-country distribution of government debt, together with Michael Song, Fabrizio Zilibotti, and Kjetil Storesletten.
Andreas is planning to spend his time as Assistant Professor working on several interesting research projects including the study of capital income taxation, multilateral tax agreements, and international capital flows.
He is also planning to study the cross-country distribution of government debt, political shocks, and government debt default.
We welcome Andreas to the Department!
