Hi, I'm Julian Hinz.

I am a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, and Postdoc Fellow at the Kiel Centre for Globalization, currently on leave from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. I hold a PhD in Economics from the Paris School of Economics and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.

I study International Economics, most often 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 spatial dimension of international economics.

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

For details on my vita check out my CV or send me an e-mail at mail@julianhinz.com. You can also follow me on twitter.
