Dr. Lennart Kraft

I am passionate about exploring the fascinating intersection of economics, technology, and legal aspects within the realm of digital markets. My research primarily revolves around understanding the intricate dynamics between firms‘ data usage, consumers‘ behavior, and regulatory frameworks from both their standpoints.
Methodologically, I leverage the power of econometrics and machine learning techniques to conduct comprehensive analyses in both cross-sectional and longitudinal contexts. To achieve a deeper understanding, I frequently employ extensive field data, ensuring the practical relevance of my research.
