Dr. Florian Weiler

My name is Florian Weiler and I started a position as Assistant Professor for Political Economy in January 2020. I hold an MA in Political Science from the University of Innsbruck, and an MA in Economics from Johns Hopkins University. After a short stay at the World Bank working on governance and anti-corruption at the end of my studies in the US, I started a PhD at ETH Zurich on the global political economy of climate change. Since finishing my dissertation, I held academic positions at the University of Bamberg (Post-doc), the University of Kent (Lecturer), and the University of Basel (Senior Researcher). My recent academic work focuses on environmental issues on the one hand, and on stakeholder strategies to influence policy processes on the other.

In my free time I enjoy walking and hiking, particularly in the Alpine regions of Austria and Italy where I grew up. I also like reading a good book or spending time with my wife with good food or while watching a movie.
