Armando Miano is a PhD student in Economics at Harvard University. His research focuses on the optimal design of welfare and tax policies. He is currently studying how large firms react to corporate tax hikes, using French administrative data. Previously, he has explored how natives in Europe and in the U.S. perceive immigrants in their countries and how perceptions affect preferences for redistributive policies. He has also worked on the effect of fiscal policies on economic growth, focusing in particular on austerity policies in times of recession and economic boom.
