Mehran Ebrahimian


I am an assistant professor in the Finance Department at Stockholm School of Economics and Eva and Mats Qviberg Research Fellow at the Swedish House of Finance. 

My Ph.D. studies is in finance at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Before Wharton, I received a M.Sc. in Economics from Sharif University of Technology and a B.Sc. in Physics. During my Ph.D. at Wharton I studied the connection between student loans and social mobility. I quantify the impact of external-financing frictions on differences in educational attainment between students from low- and high-income backgrounds. I evaluate alternatives to student debt, such as making public colleges tuition-free.

Research Interest: Household Finance, Macro-Finance, Human Capital

In my research I use empirical and theoretical approaches to analyze the impact of financing frictions on the real economy, especially as it relates to inequality.
