Dr. Christian Dudel
Welcome to my webpage. I am a researcher at the Research Group Labor Demography and the Lab of Population Health at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and a fellow of the Federal Institute for Population Research. My research interests cover sociology, demography, and research methods. My work has been published in leading journals such as Sociological Methods & Research, Demography, Social Science Research, the International Journal of Epidemiology, and many others. I have appeared on national and international media, including the Economist, Forbes Magazine, El País, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Methods and data sets I developed have been used by the German Federal Statistical Office, the World Health Organization, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, UNICEF, and the German Ministry of the Interior. Teaching is a very important part of my work, and I have taught more than 35 courses at five institutions. I am passionate about open science, and you can find the code and data for many of my papers online.
