Postdoctoral Research Associate, Economics Department
Max Risch is a postdoctoral research associate with the Economics Department at Princeton University. His research uses new administrative datasets to analyze the relationship between public policies and income inequality, with a particular focus on how firm-worker relationships mediate responses to policy changes. Another strand of research analyzes the role of tax evasion and tax enforcement for real and measured income inequality. He received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan, where he previously earned his B.A. in political science. Risch also received an M.P.A. from Columbia University and served in the U.S. Peace Corps.
