Ph.D.: Macro Reading Group (Fall 2020)

We meet on Thursdays, 12.45-14.00h. Due to the Covid situation, meetings take place online on Blackboard Collaborate until (and including) 3-Dec. From 10-Dec on we meet face-to-face in Room 18.0.A07, see also the list below. Note that focus of the group is shifted towards students' own research this semester to compensate for the lack of in-person interaction.
