Daniel Erdsiek studied economics at the University of Mannheim focusing on econometrics and labour economics. He joined the ZEW Research Department “Digital Economy” in 2011 and received his PhD in economics at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg in 2016.
In his dissertation, he analysed the efficient use of human capital in the context of the ongoing digitisation. In particular, he focused on the productivity effects of workplace flexibility and on the determinants of overqualification among university graduates. His current research interest focuses on microeconometric analyses on digitisation and its consequences for the labour market.
