Simon Fuchs



At the moment I am a Post-Doc at MOVE and a Visitor at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. In early 2019 I will join the Atlanta Fed as a Research Economist. I received my PhD from Toulouse School of Economics in 2018.

In my Research I focus on the macroeconomic effects of the spatial distribution of economic activity, often using novel data sources and quantitative models. I am particularly interested in the interplay between local labor markets and trade - both domestic and international.

Research Fields

Primary: International Economics
Secondary: Economic Geography, Labor Economics, Economic History
