Short Bio

Lukas Buchheim is Professor of Microeconomics at TU Dortmund, Germany, and research affiliate of CESifo.

Before joining TU Dortmund, he was postdoctoral researcher at LMU Munich, where he also received his PhD (in 2013). During his time at LMU Munich, he was member of the SFB/CRC 15 “Governance and the Efficency of Economic Systems” (2008 -2010) and SFB/CRC “Rationality and Competition” (2017-2021), and a visiting postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2014-2015).

In his research, Lukas Buchheim frequently works on topics on the boundary between Micro- and Macroeconomics. For example, he studied the dynamics of political transitions, estimated the regional economic dynamics of public policy from microeconomic data, and investigated how consumers and firms process information to form expectations. His work has been published in leading journals like the Review of Economic Studies, AEJ: Economic Policy, the Journal of Monetary Economics, and Management Science.
