Ingvil Gaarder

   I am an Assistant Professor at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.

   My research applies microeconomic theory and micro data to study 
    the differential effects of government policies on individuals. In one paper I have used a natural experiment in Norway to examine the incidence and                                  distributional effects of consumption taxes across households. A second strand of research has studied the effect on wage and employment outcomes 
    resulting from the interaction of new technology with different worker skill levels.
