Jacob Light

Economics Ph.D. Student

Hello world - I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Stanford University. My primary fields are labor and public finance. I am particularly interested in how changing technology impacts the skills students need to develop in college and how colleges adjust to help students prepare for an evolving labor market.

Starting Fall 2024-25, I will be a Hoover Fellow at the Hoover Institution.
