SOEP People: John Haisken-DeNew

In der neuen kleinen Serie SOEP People wollen wir in unregelmäßigen Abständen die Menschen, die hinter dem und für das SOEP stehen, in kurzen Filmsequenzen vorstellen.

In diesem Monat ist der Film über John Haisken-DeNew fertig geworden. Das Interview wurde auf englisch geführt.

John Haisken-DeNew is Professor of Economics and Associate Dean (Research) of the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne. He previously held a position as Professor of Economics and Chair in “Economic Policy: Competition Theory and Policy” at the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, he came to Germany in 1988 first as a research assistant, then as a doctoral student. In 1996, he joined the Socio-Economic Panel at DIW Berlin after completing his doctorate degree in economics at the University of Munich (LMU) under Klaus F. Zimmermann and remained until 2002. His research interests range from applied labor economics to migration, welfare, and life satisfaction. We met John in an Australian café in Berlin during the 11th Socio-Economic Panel User Conference.
