Lukas Nord

PhD Candidate in Economics

European University Institute


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the EUI in Florence, where my advisors are Árpád Ábrahám and Russell Cooper.

I will be a Junior Scholar at the Minneapolis Fed for the academic year 2023/24 before joining the University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor in 2024.

My research interests are in Quantitative Macroeconomics, with a focus on the interaction between micro decisions and macro outcomes. I use heterogeneous agent models and micro data to understand the consequences of frictional goods and labor markets and households’ response to individual and aggregate risks.
