Stefanie Stantcheva

Professor of Economics,
Harvard University



I am an economist studying the taxation of firms and individuals using models and data.

I explore the long-run effects of taxes on innovation, education & training, and wealth. How can we design the tax system to foster innovation?

I also run large-scale “Social Economics Surveys and experiments” to explore the determinants of our social preferences, attitudes, and perceptions. Visit the Social Economics Lab website to learn more.

I am a professor of Economics at Harvard University. Since May 2018, I have been a member of the French Council of Economic Advisers (Conseil d’Analyse Economique). Since January 2020, I am a co-editor at the Quarterly Journal of Economics.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from MIT in 2014 and was a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows 2014-2016 before joining the Harvard Department of Economics in July 2016.

Here is my Full CV. Also: my Research Statement and a short summary of my agenda on Taxation and Innovation.
