John Mondragon

Assistant Professor of Finance

Print Overview

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 extent to which the 2007-2008 financial crisis reduced the supply of credit to households and how much this contributed to the Great Recession. He also studies how parents' access to home equity credit affects how much students have to borrow, the interaction between household leverage and the severity of financial crises, and what explains variation in how firms price goods.

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