Sebastian Koch studied Economics and Management (Bachelor) at the trilingual Free University of Bolzano and finished his master’s degree in Economics at the University of Vienna in 2010. Since 2013 he is researcher at the Vienna-based Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS – Institut für Höhere Studien) and holds since 2015 a doctoral degree from the University of Natural Resources and Live Sciences in Vienna. Since 2011 he has taught several economic courses at the Lauder Business School in Vienna: Introduction to Microeconomics, Introduction to Macroeconomics, Specialised Economics, and Applied Economics (planned).
As a member of the economic forecasting group of IHS he deals mainly with the analysis and forecast of inflation. A second field of interest is transport economics where one area of expertise is the production of economic forecasts used in particular for transport models. And finally, he develops short-run business cycle indicators which make use of almost real-time transport network data.
