David Schoenherr is an assistant professor of economics at Princeton University. His current research focuses on the role of financial frictions and regulations in labor supply and allocation in the economy. Additionally, he is interested in the role that social networks play in influencing the allocation of resources in the economy and how the design of financial regulation and contracts can mitigate capital market frictions. Some of his recent work examines adverse effects of informal labor markets on unemployment insurance systems and how changes in the generosity of unemployment insurance provisions affect the allocation of human capital across firms. He received his doctorate in finance from London Business School in 2016 and a diploma in finance from Goethe University in 2009.
