Sonia Jaffe

I am a Phd Candidate in the Harvard University Economics Department. This summer I will be moving to Chicago to start a post-doc at the Becker Friedman Institute.

I graduated with honors in economics from the University of Chicago in 2008. During summer 2010, I worked at the Federal Trade Commission, in the Bureau of Economic Research. In 2012-2013 I visited the University of Chicago as a pre-doctoral scholar at the Becker Friedman Institute.

I am interested in a broad range of topics in applied theory, particularly in public finance. I have worked on projects in matching theory, public finance, law and economics, and industrial organization.

I am an affiliate of the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science, the John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics, and Business and the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group on Measuring and Interpreting Inequality.

When not doing economics, I like to play board games, (attempt to) solve word puzzles, and do acroyoga.
