Philip Schnorpfeil

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt. 

My research interests are in household finance, macroeconomics, and political economy.  In particular, I draw on field experiments and empirical analyses of observational data to study causes and consequences of heterogeneous beliefs of households and firms.
