Evan Soltas


I’m a graduate student in economics at Oxford on the Rhodes Scholarship. In 2016 I graduated from Princeton, where I studied economics as well as statistics and machine learning.

As an economist, my research interests are mostly in empirical public economics and political economy. You can take a look at my research here.

I write about economics, statistics, and other topics on my blog. My writing has also appeared in Bloomberg, The Financial Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Vox. From 2012 to 2014, I co-wrote the daily “Wonkbook” public-policy newsletter with Ezra Klein.
