Ulrich Schetter

Ulrich Schetter joined the Center for International Development’s Growth Lab as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2019.

His research aims to better understand channels through which globalization affects the growth and prosperity of countries. Specific channels considered include feedback effects from countries’ current specialization in international trade on their development prospects, the growth effects of import competition from technology leaders, and implications of globalization for the concentration of talent.

Before joining CID, Ulrich worked as a Postdoc at the University of St. Gallen and at Yale, and as an Economic Consultant at NERA. He holds a Dr.sc. in Economics from ETH Zurich, a Master in Quantitative Economics and Finance from the University of St. Gallen, and the CEMS Master in International Management.
