I am the Nathaniel Ropes Professor of Political Economy at Harvard and founder of the Social Economics Lab.

I study the taxation of firms and individuals, as well as how people understand, perceive, and form their attitudes towards public policies. My work has centered around the long-lasting effects of tax policy – on innovation, education, and wealth. I have also explored people’s attitudes towards taxation, health care, immigration policies, environmental policies, and social mobility using large-scale Social Economics Surveys and Experiments.
