Hi, I'm Jakob Brounstein. I'm a PhD Candidate at the Department of Economics at UC Berkeley studying public and labor economics.
My research mainly deals with tax avoidance/evasion and inequality, but my interests also extend more broadly to applying microeconomic and econometric methods to learning about social issues.
Prior to my studies at Berkeley, I lived in Manhattan and Reims, France, where I finished my undergraduate degrees.
In Fall 2023 I will be joining the Institute for Fiscal Studies as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
