David Jaeger

David A. Jaeger is a professor of economics at the City University of New York Graduate Center and the University of Cologne. He received his B.A. from Williams College (1986), and an M.A. (statistics, 1993) and Ph.D. (economics, 1995) from the University of Michigan. He has held regular and visiting positions at the College of William and Mary, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the University of Bonn, and Princeton University. In 1995, he was the first recipient of the W. E. Upjohn Institute Dissertation Award and has also received a research fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung. His current migration research focuses immigrant mortality, the relationship between immigration and innovation, and self-employment of immigrants. Other current research projects examine the dynamics of violence in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the use of the bootstrap in econometrics. Most importantly, he has the singular distinction (among economists) of having his research mentioned in one of Jay Leno's monologues on the Tonight Show in July 2005.

David Jaeger joined CReAM as an external fellow in January 2007.
