Dr Stefan Thewissen

I am a postdoctoral research officer interested in the evolution and distribution of income and living standards. I am affiliated with the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, and I am an associate member of Nuffield College. Please consult my website for the most up-to-date information: stefanthewissen.com.

My current research focuses on the measurement, growth, and distribution of incomes. In addition I am interested in job risks including globalisation and technological change, attitudes such as redistribution preferences, and social and health policies.
