Bio & CV

A pdf-file of my CV is here: DahmCV (updated August 2019)

DahmI am Professor of Economics at the University of Leicester. Currently, I teach the first year course EC1020 Topics in Applied Microeconomics at the undergraduate level.

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.

My research uses microeconomics and game theory to investigate questions in industrial & health economics, public & political economics,  and contest theory. 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 On these pages you find my research papers organized by field and keywords, a list of publications, and my unpublished papers.
