Ph.D., Assistant Professor | Drexel University
Sebastien holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan. He joined Drexel University as an Assistant Professor in 2011. His research examines the nature and scope of tax-induced distortions to consumer and firm behavior in environments distinguished by the degree of market salience of particular tax policy features. His work ranges from local tax policy issues such as the consequences of limited attention on the part of consumers for property tax capitalization and delinquency, real estate transaction timing, and air travel demand patterns to international tax issues including consideration of tax-motivated profit reallocation by multinational corporations.
