Stefan Pollinger

Welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor at Sciences Po in Paris. My main fields of interest are Public Economics, Applied Econometrics, and Environmental Economics.

My research focuses on the evaluation and optimization of public policies. The theoretical part of my research focuses on deriving optimal public policies as a function of observable indicators. This so-called sufficient-statistics approach has the advantage that optimal policies become easily implementable for policymakers. My research's empirical part focuses on recovering sufficient-statistics for optimal policy design by using novel quasi-experimental identification strategies. I am interested in applications in Public Economics, Environmental Economics, Health Economics, and Macroeconomics.
