Welcome!

Rainer Kotschy

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

In my research, I examine how health improvements and population aging shape economic development at both the microeconomic and macroeconomic level to guide the design of sustainable policy. In a second strand of research, I explore the economic and demographic factors promoting institutional quality to identify determinants of economic well-being and risks for stability of democracy.
