Welcome to my webpage!

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) . I received my PhD summa cum laude from the University of Potsdam in 2021 and am a dedicated health economist and labor economist. My research focuses on understanding the transmission of socio-economic differences in health across generations, as well as the interaction between immigration and mental health. I also study the economics of the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically the impact of lockdowns, the lockdowns’ effects on the well-being of employees and self-employed persons, and vaccination efforts. In 2022, I received an award for one of the best publications at the DIW Berlin. Since 2023, I am the proud father of a fabulous daughter. You can contact me via dgraeber [at] diw [dot] de.
