Professor Krueger is a managing editor of the Review of

Economic Studies, a Research Associate at the National

Bureau of Economic Research and Penn's Population Studies Center, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research, a Research Fellow at Netspar, a Research Professor

at Mannheim Research Institute for the Economics of Aging,

and an Adjunct Professor and Research Fellow at Goethe

University Frankfurt.

His research has focused on whether, how and to what extent

risk, a central concern in macroeconomics, is shared across

households or groups of households. The main risks that affect

typical households are labor income risks (e.g., due to

becoming unemployed), health, disability and mortality risks.

Since the economic impact of these risks is potentially large

the welfare impact of sharing their economic consequences

can be substantial. His research in this area, which is located in

the field of macroeconomics but has strong links to other

fields of economics, especially public finance and labor

economics, combines economic theory with empirical

and computational methods to answer research questions that

are of immediate policy relevance.
