Neubauer Family Assistant Professor
Johannes Stroebel conducts research in macroeconomics, finance, and real estate economics. His recent research focuses on the residential housing market, in particular on understanding the role of asymmetric information about collateral values in mortgage lending. He has also analyzed the impact of government interventions in the housing market through the fiscal code and has evaluated government responses to the recent financial crisis. Stroebel also works on determining the optimal taxation of natural resource extraction projects when governments are unable to credibly commit to future tax terms and has won the USAEE/IAEE Best Working Paper award for this research.
He earned a PhD in economics at Stanford University in 2012, where he held the Bradley and Kohlhagen Fellowships at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. Prior to attending Stanford, he read philosophy, politics, and economics at Merton College, Oxford, and won the Hicks and Webb Medley Prize for the best performance in economics. Stroebel is a member of the Working Group on Economic Policy at the Hoover Institution. In the past he has worked for Deutsche Bank and Merck KGaA.
Stroebel joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2012.
