Martin Feldkircher holds the Chair in International Economics at the Vienna School of International Studies (Diplomatische Akademie Wien – DA). He graduated from the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna (Economics Program), completed his PhD at the University of Innsbruck and holds a venia docendi from the department of economics at Vienna University of Business and Economics. Before joining the DA in October 2020, he spent twelve years in the Austrian central bank’s Foreign Research Division developing empirical models to analyze Central, Eastern and Southeastern European (CESEE) economies. 

Martin Feldkircher’s research interests are in the fields of international macroeconomics, monetary policy and Bayesian econometrics. He has developed large multi-country models to quantify the connectivity between countries with a regional focus on the CESEE region. Other research topics cover aspects of the global financial crisis, side effects of monetary policy, forecasting, economic growth and, more generally, comparative economics.

In 2017 and 2019, he was listed as one of the top 100 young economists among all economists working in Germany, Austria and the German-speaking part of Switzerland in the prestigious Handelsblatt ranking. He has contributed to numerous articles in leading peer-reviewed journals, such as: the European Economic Review, the Journal of Banking & Finance, the Journal of International Money and Finance, the Journal of Comparative Economics, Regional Studies, the Journal of Forecasting, the Journal of Business & Economic Statistics, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control and the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A.
