Kurt Mitman

I will receive my PhD from the Department of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania in May, 2014. Beginning August 1, I will be an Assistant Professor at the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES) at Stockholm University. My research focuses broadly on macroeconomics. I am particularly interested in household finance, default and labor markets.
