Dr. Andreas Kuebart
Research Associate | Dynamics of Economic Spaces

Dr. Andreas Kuebart is a research associate in the research department “Dynamics of Economic Spaces” since 2015 and a post-doc fellow at the chair for Socio-Spatial Transformation at the Brandenburg University of Technology since 2019.

His research interests are situated between the disciplinary boundaries of human- and economic geography and focus on the geographies of socio-spatial processes in context of the digital economy. Thematically, his research involves topics related to the geographies of entrepreneurial ecosystems, to financial geographies and more generally to issues of regional development. Methodically, he has been involved in qualitative case studies and especially applies the techniques of spatial data science to economic geography.

Kuebart graduated in 2012 with a B.A. in (Human) Geography from Humboldt University of Berlin and with a M.Sc. in Geography from Bonn University in 2015 with a master’s thesis on the financial geography of venture capital in Germany. In between, he spent exchange semesters at the University of Florida (Gainesville), Stockholm University and Berlin Institute for Technology. In January 2020, he graduated as Dr. rer. nat. from Free University of Berlin. For his dissertation project he researched the geographies of knowledge in the context of entrepreneurial ecosystem with case studies on seed accelerators in the US and Germany.
