About Hans Bjurek

My main area of research is production theory where I have concentrated on how to measure productivity and efficiency from both a theoretical and an applied perspective. I have participated in several projects in which these methods have been applied, for instance in development economics, labor economics and public service production. I teach microeconomics, macroeconomics, financial economics and mathematics, where I am course coordinator for a number of courses in both programs and for non-program courses.
