Prof. Dr Anthony Strittmatter
Anthony Strittmatter has been Professor of Applied Econometrics at UniDistance Suisse since 2023. His academic interests centre on applied empirical research, specialising in the fields of labour economics and business economics. He uses causal inference and machine learning methods to rigorously analyse a wide range of experimental and nonexperimental data. He is particularly interested in exploring heterogeneous effects and deriving optimal allocation strategies for public and private policies.
His academic career started at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, the University of Karlsruhe (TH) and the Corvinus University of Budapest. In 2009, he graduated from the University of Freiburg with a degree in economics. In 2013, he earned his PhD in Economics and Finance from the University of St. Gallen (HSG). Subsequently, his professional career included visiting scholar positions at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) and at UC Berkeley. In 2020, he was appointed as a tenure-track assistant professor at the Centre for Research in Economics (CREST) in Paris. He also took on the role of senior economist within Amazon's I&I team, effectively bridging the gap between academic insights and real-world impact.
