Christine Braun is a Macroeconomist interested in the changing dynamics of the labour market. She received her PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research is focused on studying labour markets within the scope of economic theory and data to better understand and influence policy. She believes that empirical research should be driven by appropriate theory and theoretical research should be motivated by empirical observations. Her current research considers how labour market models with frictions align with data, as well as how labour market data should be combined and used in applications of theoretical models.
During her time at UCSB, she taught undergraduate microeconomic theory as well as econometric theory. She also worked as a research analyst at the UCSB Economic Forecast Project, supervising top undergraduate students to provide local labour market and housing data to the community.
