Professor Clemens Puppe

BA Free University Berlin, PhD Karlsruhe
Oliver Smithies Visiting Fellow (Economics)

Academic subject(s):


I studied Mathematics and Philosophy at the University of Heidelberg and the Free University of Berlin and received my PhD from the University of Karlsruhe with a thesis on individual decision-making under uncertainty. After a postdoc year at Harvard, I joined the Department of Economics at the University of Vienna where I received my habilitation in 1997. From 1997 to 2003 I was Associate Professor of Economics at Bonn University, and since 2003 I am full Professor at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (formerly University of Karlsruhe).

In my academic research, I have addressed topics in microeconomic theory, especially decision theory and social choice theory. In either area, I am interested both in normative questions and in issues related to behavioural analysis. My main current research project is about the possibility of making collective decisions based on majoritarian principles. 

Music is my greatest other love.
