Jonathan Tebes

Welcome to my homepage!

I am an Assistant Research Professor of Economics in the Economics Department at the University of Notre Dame and the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO). In May 2022, I received a Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University, where I was advised by Lawrence Katz, Edward Glaeser, Andrei Shleifer, and Desmond Ang

I work primarily on topics in labor and public economics related to economic mobility, racial inequality, and poverty alleviation. I have examined how reforms to stop-and-frisk in NYC affected crime and high school engagement, racial bias in officers' stopping decisions, and civic responses to police violence

Currently, I'm working on several randomized evaluations that explore the following questions:

I have also been a Stone Scholar in Harvard's Inequality & Social Policy Program, an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, and a Horowitz Foundation Awardee
