Andreas Wiedemann

Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics

Research Interests: financial markets, wealth inequality, economic insecurity, welfare states, public opinion, comparative political economy

I study political economy and comparative politics in advanced democracies, focusing on financial markets, wealth inequality, and social policies. My current research explores the political causes and consequences of financial insecurity, household debt, and support for the welfare state. My research uses quantitative methods, including observational and experimental designs, and combines administrative full-population records, household panels, and original cross-national survey data. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from MIT.
