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. Teaching takes an integral part in my work. I am interested in trialling and producing new teaching materials and adopting and researching novel teaching technologies. 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.
