Joep Lustenhouwer is an Assistant Professor (Jun.Prof.) in Macroeconomics at Heidelberg University and scientific leader of the junior research group.
After obtaining his PhD degree at the University of Amsterdam, Joep was a postdoc at the University of Bamberg for two years. This position was partly funded by the Hans Böckler Foundation where he became a liaison professor directly after joining Heidelberg University.
Joep’s research perfectly matches that of the junior research group by focusing on expectation formation in macroeconomics. His aim is to develop a better understanding of how expectations are actually formed and to derive new implications for monetary and fiscal policy from this. He uses complementary methodologies by empirically analyzing survey expectations, conducting controlled laboratory experiments, and incorporating bounded rationality into macroeconomic modelling. His research has been published in various peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Monetary Economics.Team
