Saurabh Bhargava

Assistant Professor of Economics, Carnegie Mellon University

Bhargava will study the factors which shape individual behavior in two areas of policy importance—the choice of health insurance and job searches among the unemployed. He will explore how consumers navigate increasingly complex health plan options and how policymakers can encourage financially sensible plan choices. He will also investigate the extent to which job seekers deviate from optimal job search behavior and how unemployment policies can be redesigned to better reflect the psychological impacts of job loss.
