Josefin Meyer is Postdoctoral Researcher at the Kiel Institute. She studied economics at the Hamburg University and Free University of Berlin and holds a PhD in Public Economics from the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich. 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.
