Boris Knapp


I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Vienna. In my research I study how information provision - or the lack thereof - affects behavior in consumer markets and ultimately consumer welfare. I apply my insights to answer questions about regulation policy.

I am on the 2022/23 academic job market.
