Hello, and welcome!

I am John S. Olson, a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Michigan. In Fall 2024, I will start as an Assistant Professor of Instruction in the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University, working closely with the Dual Master's Degree in Applied Economics and Social and Economic Policy. 

I study macroeconomics and public finance. I am particularly interested in tax and transfer systems, and how they may impact economic opportunity, the business cycle, and growth. I also love to teach econ! Starting in Fall 2024, I will be participating in the Research and Innovation for Social and Economic Inclusion Lab.

You can find my email and phone number at the top of my CV. Feel free to reach out!
