I am a postdoctoral researcher in the SOEP department at the DIW Berlin, as well as a Research Affiliate at the IZA Bonn and a Senior Member at the Center for Economic Policy Analysis (CEPA). At the SOEP, I am responsible for research on well-being. My current research is centered on health economics, intergenerational mobility, and the formation of risk preferences. I am also interested in the economics of entrepreneurship. My research has been published in journals such as Entrepreneurship, Theory and Practice (IF = 10.5), Journal of Population Economics (IF = 6.5), and PLOS ONE (IF = 3.7). In 2022, I received an award for one of the best publications at DIW Berlin. You can contact me via dgraeber [at] diw [dot] de.

Since 2023, I am the proud father of a fabulous daughter. I will be on paternal leave from November 9, 2023, until May 8, 2024.
