About Jonathan Kolstad
Short bio: Professor Kolstad is an Assistant Professor of Economic Analysis and Policy at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. He is an economist whose research interests lie at the intersection of health economics, industrial organization and public economics. A unifying theme of his work is an effort to understand how information, market structure and regulation alter firm organization, individual incentives and, ultimately, welfare. His work has studied, amongst other things, the impact of quality information on demand as well as intrinsic surgeon incentives, the impact of the Massachusetts health insurance expansion on a variety of outcomes and consumer decision making in insurance markets. Kolstad was awarded the Arrow Award from the International Health Economics Association for the best paper in health economics in 2014. Professor Kolstad is also a co-founder and Chief Data Scientist at Picwell. Professor Kolstad received his PhD from Harvard University and BA from Stanford University.
