Ulrich Schneider, University of Groningen
Ulrich Schneider is an assistant professor at the University of Groningen. He completed his Ph.D. in 2019 at the Free University of Berlin under the supervision of Peter Haan (FU Berlin & DIW Berlin) and Richard Blundell (UCL & IFS).
His research interests are Structural Econometrics, Behavioral Economics, and Labor Economics and is especially interested in how individuals make decisions over their life-cycle and how behavioral elements impact these choices. Most of his work focuses on time preferences and expectations, and he develops new strategies to recover these from standard administrative and survey data. Most often, he rely on policy environments and natural experiments for identification. With the help of structural models, he also analyze how public policy can lessen the negative consequences caused by behavioral decision-making.
