Dr. Ulrich Eydam

Ulrich Eydam studied Economics at the Viadrina University Frankfurt/Oder, at the University of Potsdam, and at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IFW). Since 2016, he has been a research assistant at the Chair for Growth, Integration and Sustainable Development. In 2021, he completed his dissertation project at the University of Potsdam (Essays in Macroeconomics).

Since September 2020, Ulrich has been working at the University of Potsdam in the joint project Ariadne together with PIK and 26 other research institutes. The focus of his research in the Ariadne project is on the macroeconomic implications of climate change and climate policy. In particular, he analyses the distributional effects associated with climate change mitigation measures.

In general, his research interests cover a wide range of macroeconomic topics, including  institutions and growth, distribution and inequality, aggregate dynamics, and macroeconomic policy making. To study these topics, he uses structural macroeconomic models as well as a wide range of econometric methods (e.g. time series analysis and panel estimation).
