Jad Moawad


Jad Moawad recently earned his PhD in Social Sciences from the University of Lausanne. His research focused on the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, examining its far-reaching impact on disparate societal aspects, including earnings and health inequalities.

Jad worked with large-scale surveys such as the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) and the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS). Recently, he also started designing experiments. These aim to understand societal attitudes related to wealth redistribution.

In June 2023, Jad received a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and will conduct his postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford. His next project will investigate wealth inequalities among different stratified subgroups. He will also analyze consumption and saving patterns across different European countries.
