Christian Ochsner is an Economist with a research focus in quantitative economic history. He is Assistant Professor at CERGE-EI Prague since September 2018. Christian holds a PhD from Dresden University of Technology, Germany (2018). During his PhD studies, Christian was employed as a Junior Economist at the ifo Institute for Economic Research, where he focused on the transition of Eastern Germany, the former socialist GDR. In his research, Christian looks at critical junctures in history and how they matter today. His current research looks on the situation in present-day Austria and investigates how the liberation and zoning of Austria after World War II are still visible in socio-economic figures today. He uses quasi-experimental settings in history and combines econometric techniques and contextualization. Christian is also starting to explore origins of differences in gender norms and behavior.
