Philipp is a Ph.D. student at the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim in Mannheim, Germany. In his thesis, he is working on the econometrics of policy design and evaluation. Philipp's research goal is to assist policy makers in making informed policy choices. Thus, he focuses on the development and application of modern ecnometric techniques. In combining these with suitable data sources, he hopes to collect robust evidence on the econometric performance of public policies.
Currently, Phillip works on the Option Value Project with Professor Heckman and Stefano Mosso. Together, they construct a structural dynamic model of schooling choices and investigate the impact of option values on educational attainment. The sources of the option values are the opportunities of accessing even greater schooling granted by achieving a given schooling level.
