Thomas Sattler's Webpage

Thanks for visiting my webpage!


I am a political economist at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Before moving to Geneva in 2015, I was on the faculty at the London School of Economics & Political Science. I also taught at the University College Dublin, was a post-doc at Princeton University and New York University and held research fellowships at the European University Institute, Central European University, and Trinity College Dublin. I got my Ph.D. from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. 


My research examines the political consequences of fiscal adjustments, the effect of democratic political processes on financial markets, and the impact of international institutions on government behavior. Results from this research has been published or is forthcoming in journals like the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, the European Journal of Political Research, International Organization, the Journal of Politics and the Socio-Economic Review.
