Ph.D. Candidate in Economics
Christian Wolf is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Princeton University. His research interests lie at the intersection of macroeconomics, econometrics, and finance. In ongoing work, he shows how to estimate the "missing general equilibrium intercept" of microlevel diff-in-diff regressions for macro policy questions, with applications to the aggregate effects of consumption and investment tax stimulus. In other projects he has revisited the classical question of monetary policy transmission, studied the aggregation properties of macroeconomic models with rich firm heterogeneity (with Yann Koby), and proved the generic equivalence of two popular econometric techniques—Local Projections and Structural Vector Autoregressions (with Mikkel Plagborg-Møller). Prior to joining the Ph.D. program at Princeton University, he received a B.A. in economics from the University of Cambridge.
