Thank you for visting my website! My name is Jonas Nauerz and I am a macroeconomist with a focus on labor market questions and the effects of government policies. I am particularly interested in how heterogeneity on a micro level such as age, gender, and marital status interacts with economic policy and the macroeconomy.
Currently, I am a fourth year PhD student in economics at the University of Notre Dame. Before joining Notre Dame, I graduated with a Master of Science in economics from the Stockholm School of Economics and during my undergraduate studies at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, I spent a semester abroad at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik.

We study the expansion of the non-contributory public health care system Seguro Integral de Salud in Peru using a general equilibrium heterogeneous agents model and find that overall welfare increases, but informality rises while tax revenues and output decrease
We study the response of monthly U.S. dollar real exchange rates to global and country-specific temperature shocks and find large cross-sectional differences across country pairs. The real exchange rate is more likely to depreciate if the country is warmer, wealthier, more dependent on agriculture, less open and more dependent on tourism.
Using a life-cycle model of heterogeneous households, family labor supply, and intra-household bargaining, I study the effects of increasing U.S. public spending on childcare to Scandinavian levels on women’s labor supply and find that the policy increases long-run labor force participation among married women.
I develop a life cycle model with heterogeneous agents to study the effects of a 2017 reform in the German pension system on the effective average retirement age and find it increases by 2.7 years.
