Vincent Pohl joined the School of Policy Studies in 2012 after receiving his PhD in Economics from Yale University. He obtained an Economics degree from the University of Mannheim in 2006 and spent one year at the University of California, Berkeley as a visiting graduate student.
His current research focuses on the role of health and health policy in the labour market: the effect of the Affordable Care Act on labour supply, the causal impact of health shocks on earnings, and role of different health care systems in determining labour force participation in European countries. In addition, he is interested in the question why some firms pay higher wages than others, the effect of marriage and divorce on health, and the transition of patients from hospital to nursing home care.
