About Me

My name is Florian Unger. I work as a Junior Professor for Economics at the University of Goettingen. My research focuses on the interaction of financial frictions and globalization, innovation and international trade, as well as the effects of corporate taxation on export behavior.
I am affiliated to the CESifo Research Network and have published my work in international journals such as Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization and Economics Letters.
