Michael Lovenheim is the Searle Freedom Trust Post-doctoral Fellow at SIEPR. He is also a visiting lecturer in Economics at Stanford University. Lovenheim’s research is in public finance and labor economics, particularly focusing on the economics of education and issues in local taxation. His recent papers consider the lengthening of the time it takes students to obtain an undergraduate degree, the role of housing wealth in the college enrollment decision, and the effect of teachers’ unions on K-12 educational resources. He received his PhD in Economics from the University of Michigan in 2007 and has since been a post-doctoral fellow at SIEPR.
