Assistant Professor of Finance

John Mondragon is an Assistant Professor of Finance and Donald P. Jacobs Scholar. His research focuses on household finance and empirical macroeconomics. His recent work has focused on the effects of regulations on household leverage in the mortgage market, how the collapse in house prices crisis contributed to increases in student loans, and the extent to which the 2007-2008 financial crisis reduced the supply of credit to households and how much this contributed to employment losses in the Great Recession. 

Professor Mondragon joined the Kellogg School of Management in July 2015. He received his PhD in economics in 2015 from the University of California at Berkeley.
