About me

Normalien with an MRes in economics from both the PSE and LSE - I specialise in social insurance and study possible welfare enhancing changes to existing designs (mostly focusing on unemployment insurance).   I currently explore the role of waiting periods in the design of social insurance, and ask whether the design of these waiting periods could be modified in a welfare enhancing way.
