Hi, I'm Julian Hinz.
I am an empirical economist working on topics in international trade, migration and applied econometrics. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and Postdoc Fellow at the Kiel Centre for Globalization. In 2018–2019 I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the Paris School of Economics and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
I study International trade, in particular its political economy and connection with foreign policy, the spatial dimension of international trade and migration, often in the context of the so-called gravity equation, and applied econometrics. My work is characterized by policy-relevant research questions that make use of state-of-the-art quantitative methods often involving big data, as well as devising and implementing econometric techniques to handle such types of data.
