Kyle Rozema (Wachtell Lipton Fellow in Behavioral Law and Economics, Chicago) has accepted a tenure-track tax position at Washington University, beginning in August 2019:
Kyle Rozema’s research interests are in how legal rules affect economic inequality, disparate outcomes, and discrimination. To study these questions, he uses a range of empirical methods, collaborates across disciplines, and collects original data. His main research interests are in tax law and policy. Kyle's tax research explores the distributional consequences of taxes and the interactions between tax laws and other public policies. Much of his tax research to date seeks to understand the extent to which the distributional consequences of tax laws are more nuanced than conventional wisdom would suggest. Beyond tax law, Kyle conducts empirical research on bias and discrimination in the law in general, largely focusing on the manners in which discrimination can affect employment patterns in law-related professions.
Kyle's recent publications include:
Kyle received a PhD in economics from Cornell University and a JD from Washington University in St. Louis. He then taught tax policy as a post-doctoral fellow in empirical legal studies at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
