Welcome to the homepage of Alexander Schmidt-Catran

I am a social scientist at the University of Cologne. I studied sociology, social psychology and economics. I finished my PhD-thesis in spring 2013. I have written my PhD-thesis as a member of the Research Training Group SOCLIFE which is funded by the German Science Foundation. SOCLIFE is an interdiscplinary graduate school which focusses on cross-national research, particularly, on multilevel analysis. Since 2011, I am a research associate at the Chair for Empirical Social and Economic Research where I teach advanced multivariate statistics and survey methodology. This chair is part of the Institute for Sociology and Social Psychology (ISS).

Please feel free to inform yourself, download my papers or contact me for more information.
