Research

In her research, Kerstin Pull takes a personnel economics perspective on HR questions. In most of her projects, she follows a quantitative empirical approach.

For her analyses, she uses different data sources that include archival data, survey data, experimental data, data from personnel records, and also sports data. Recently, her quantitative-empirical work is complemented by qualitative studies.

Kerstin Pull’s work is funded via a number of grants, among others by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Federal Ministry of Education & Research (BMBF) and the German Excellence Initiative.
