Christian Spielman_04bw My name is Christian Spielmann. I am a social scientist at the Department of Economics at University College London. I have been educated at Hamburg University (Germany), the University of St. Andrews (UK), University College London (UK) and Birkbeck College (UK).

In my research I am interested in questions about public policy (mainly education and inequality), globalisation (mainly migration and trade), and the environment. My work usually has strong policy relevance. I have been lecturing on the public sector, the environment, globalisation and macroeconomic issues. In both my research and my teaching I enjoy collaborations across disciplines.
