Gerard Domenech-ArumiBoston University
I am an applied microeconomist who combines administrative and survey data to address questions about inequality and labor markets.
In my job market paper, I combine housing and survey data to develop a new measure of local inequality and investigate whether individuals residing in more unequal neighborhoods perceive higher levels of inequality and are more in favor of redistribution.
After completing my PhD at Boston University, I will be joining ECARES as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Fall 2021.
