Eliot Abrams

I am a PhD candidate in economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

My research focuses on the marketing of financial products to consumers including bank deposit accounts, mortgages, and crowdfunding securities. In particular, my dissertation examines the importance of accounting for limited consumer consideration of banks when estimating the demand for deposit accounts. See JMP.

While most of my work is at the intersection of marketing and finance, I am also interested in making better use of economic experiments--both new methods for finding natural experiments in large datasets and ways to improve the registration of randomized controlled trials.
