Hi, my name is Sebastian Gehart. Welcome to my website.
I studied political science with a focus on international affairs and governance in Hamburg, Germany, and St. Gallen, Switzerland, before joining Germany’s bilateral development agency Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in 2007.
After working several years as a policy analyst for GIZ, I returned to academia for doctoral research on multilateral efforts to improve the effectiveness of foreign aid and was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Warwick in the UK in 2014.
Having previously taught classes on quantitative methods and use of statistical software applications in social science research, I recently joined the University College Freiburg as a lecturer for research methods. I also work as a freelance consultant for evaluation and monitoring in international development. Here are recent examples of my work.
I am happily married, father of two lovely daughters and live in Lahr, north of Freiburg.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
