Josefin Meyer is a Research Fellow at the Kiel Institute. Her research interests are international finance, sovereign debt, and resource economics with a long-run perspective.
One of her current projects encompasse among others a near-census-wide micro-level historical database on international capital flows by banks, corporate, states, and central governments. The project aims to detect new puzzles and revises classical theories.
In a another project she studies the composition of bilateral-product-level trade flows over the last 150 years. This project has a particular focus on the interlinkage of geo-economic conflicts and import dependence on critical commodities.
