A pdf-file of my CV is here: DahmCV (updated May 2021)

DahmI am Professor of Economics at the University of Leicester and Head of the Department of Economics, Finance and Accounting (EFA) of the University of Leicester Business School.

I am Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Currently, I teach a second-year module on Intermediate Microeconomics, a third-year module on Public Economics, both at the undergraduate level, as well as MBA students on the Economics of Climate Change.

After studying my undergraduate degree at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (including a year at the Université Louis Pasteur de Strasbourg), I received a PhD from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I then spent one and a half years at the Universidad de Alicante, before joining the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University for a two year post-doc. Prior to coming to Leicester, I taught at the University of Nottingham as well as the Spanish Universities Rovira i Virgili and Carlos III de Madrid. I have also been a long-term visiting scholar at the University of California (Irvine) and at the Freie Universität Berlin.

Most of my research uses microeconomics and game theory to investigate questions in public & political economics as well as industrial & health economics. A summary is here. My publications have appeared in the Economic Journal, the Journal of Public Economics and the Journal of the European Economic Association, among others. On these pages you find my research papers organized by field and keywords, a list of publications, and my unpublished papers.
