Visiting Doctoral Student

Ignacio Hauser


Ignacio Hauser is a visiting Ph.D. student at INET Oxford and the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford. He is a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Jean Monnet University & the University of Lyon (France) and a research fellow at GATE Lyon-Saint-Etienne, a research unit in economics attached to the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), since October 2021.

His research interests extend to the measurement, causes, and consequences of economic inequality and, more broadly, to questions of redistribution and social policy. His doctoral research, funded by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, focuses on the measurement of economic inequality and explores the technical, normative, and public policy implications underlying the use of different measurement tools. To this end, he addresses it through a multidisciplinary approach that includes applied economics, philosophy of economics, economic methodology, and the history of economic thought.

Ignacio completed both an M.Res. and an M.A. in Economics and Social Sciences from Lumière University Lyon 2 (France), a one-year fellowship for the ‘Amartya Sen Program’ granted by the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), and a B.A. (five-year degree) in Economics from the National University of Cuyo (Argentina).
