Welcome to the website of Prof. Dr. Christian Fischer
I am an economist working in the fields of International Trade and Industrial Organization. Primarily, my research is concerned with the organization of multinational firms’ sourcing decisions and export activities.
Much of my work analyses firms from a strategic perspective and takes a particular focus on long-term aspects of inter-firm cooperation. While most of my research is theoretical in nature I put emphasis on deriving testable predictions that I evaluate in collaboration with other researchers.
My teaching adds to the department's curriculum in International Economics and is particularly relevant for Bachelor and Master students who wish to specialize in this field. You can find more information on the courses that I offer on this website.
