Hi, I'm Julian Hinz.

I'm a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and Postdoc Fellow at the Kiel Centre for Globalization. I hold a PhD in Economics from the Paris School of Economics and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. I will join the European University Institute in Florence as a Max Weber Fellow in September 2018.

I study International Trade, in particular in the context of so-called gravity equations and the interaction between trade and foreign policy. I am interested in the economic and political effects of sanctions, and the use of big data to study trade frictions at the subnational level.

I have taught students from undergraduate to PhD-level, including courses on Statistics, Microeconomics and International Trade.
