Sonia Jaffe

I am a graduate student in the Harvard University Economics Department. In 2012-2013 I visited the University of Chicago as a pre-doctoral scholar 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. I took my oral exams in microeconomic theory and public economics and am interested in a broad range of topics in (applied) microtheory. I have worked on projects in 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 cook, play board games, (attempt to) solve word puzzles, and read science fiction.
