Thomas Winberry is a macroeconomist who is interested in what micro data can teach us about aggregate issues. His recent work focuses on how firm-level investment behavior shapes the dynamics of aggregate investment over the business cycle, and the response of aggregate investment to fiscal and monetary policy. A secondary strand of Tom’s research is in computational economics, focusing on how to efficiently compute macro models that feature realistic inequality across firms and workers.
Tom earned his Ph.D. in economics from Princeton University in 2015, and joined the Booth faculty in that year. Before his studies at Princeton, Tom earned a B.A. in economics (with highest honors) and applied mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley.
