Yonatan Berman

Postdoctoral Fellow in Ergodicity Economics

My work focuses on social mobility, economic inequality and their inter-relationship. I am particularly interested in understanding whether inequality leads to lower social mobility, and whether there is “enough” social mobility to “care less” about increasing inequality. I am addressing these questions both empirically and theoretically.

I am working with Alex Adamou and Ole Peters as a part of the Ergodicity Economics project.
