Department of Economics / IAME

Where economic theory meets data
We use observational data and experimental data from the lab and from the field to test and improve economic theories of decision-making.

Institute for Applied Microeconomics

The Institute for Applied Microeconomics is currently looking for student assistants.
Applications are accepted until the positions are filled.

The research conducted at the Institute for Applied Micro­economics (IAME) covers a broad range of topics, including

  • labor economics, the economics of education, and human develop­ment,
  • preference formation, evolution of social norms, and cognitive and affective deter­minants of decision-making,
  • health and environ­mental economics,
  • industrial organization, managerial economics, and per­sonnel eco­nomics.

In our research, we apply micro­economic theory, we conduct lab and field experi­ments, we analyze survey and admin­is­trative data using state-of-the-art micro­econo­metric methods, and we col­laborate with psy­cholo­gists and neuro­scien­tists.

In Bonn we collaborate with BGSE, BonnEconLab, and CENs, as well as IZA and MPI for Re­search on Col­lec­tive Goods.
