His research interests include public economics, labor economics, and applied econometrics. Within these fields, his research focuses on income redistribution programs, the role of social effects on economic outcomes, and the effects of limits to cognition in social insurance.

Luttmer’s research seeks to understand what drives the demand for redistribution and social insurance and how the implementation of redistribution and social insurance programs can be improved. Many of my papers highlight the important role of social effects in economic behavior. Much of my more recent research explores the role of cognitive limitations on demand for and design of social insurance programs.
