Oliver Krebs studied 'International Business Administration' (B.Sc.) at the University of Tübingen from 2006 to 2009 and 'International Economics and Business' (M.A.) at the University of Passau from 2010 to 2012. He completed his subsequent dissertation at the University of Würzburg in 2019 with the thesis 'Essays on International Trade, Regional Change and Structural Growth' (supervisor: Prof. Dr. Michael Pflüger). In 2018 he substituted for the Juniorprofessorship of Empirical Regional and International Economics at the University of Würzburg and has been working as a post-doctoral researcher at the chair of International Economics and European Integration at the University of Tübingen since February 2019. In 2021 he moved to the Chair of Applied Economics: Innovation and Internationalization (ETH Zurich).
His research focuses on international and regional trade and regional labor markets with a special focus on large data sets and recent advances in data science. Besides this I am also interested in economic geography, urban economics and trade policy questions.
