About

Welcome to Dr. Henning Hermes’ personal website!

I am an Assistant Professor at FAIR Center of Excellence at the NHH Bergen/Norway. In addition, I am an IZA Research Affiliate and a Research Fellow at CIDER.

A behavioral economist by background, my research focuses on the Economics of Education, skill formation, and child and youth development. I also have projects in the areas of early childhood education as well as digital learning. Most of my research is conducted using field experimental methodology, but I also ran lab-in-the-field and lab experimental studies.

I studied Economics and Psychology at the University of Mainz, where I also pursued my PhD (supervised by Daniel Schunk and Ernst Fehr). I am happy about your interest in my work and hope to provide an overview here on this website.

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me or take a look at my CV.
