Michael Miess

Former Researcher

Michael Miess joined CSH as a pre-doctoral researcher in September 2017 to work on the development and methodology of empirical agent based models. He has participated in building an agent-based model for the Austrian economy incorporating a wide range of macroeconomic data sources (national accounts, input-output tables, government statistics, census data and business surveys). This model, which is able to outperform standard time series models (ARMA and VAR models) in short- to medium-term forecasting of major macroeconomic variables and has a large potential for scenario and policy analysis, will be the main focus of his work at CSH.

Michael holds a master’s degree in economics from the University of Vienna, and is currently writing his PhD thesis in economics at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Wien) on macroeconomic empirical agent-based modelling. Michael has been a researcher (on leave) at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) Vienna since 2008, where he has been researching in the fields of macroeconomics, empirical stock-flow consistent macroeconomic modelling, endogenous credit-driven financial cycles, energy and environmental economics, and where he has coordinated an EU co-funded project on electromobility.

Before joining CSH, he has worked as research assistant at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and at the Institute for Ecological Economics at WU Wien.
