Research in Economics
Our department has a long-standing mission to perform economic research that advances our knowledge in both theoretical and applied economics, and to disseminate that knowledge through publication in leading peer-reviewed journals. We have a strong faculty engaged in a wide range of applied and theoretical research.
Our strengths include but are not limited to econometrics, macroeconomics, microeconomic theory, labor economics, and public economics. Our faculty members have published and continue to publish their research in profession's most prestigious journals. Our faculty members' research has been supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
In addition to their own research, our faculty members hold seven editorial board positions on some of the leading journals of the profession. Department members include two associate editors of journals and one NIH review panel member. The Economics Department also includes two research associates at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), one Elected Honorary Fellow of International Institute of Forecasters, a Fellow of the International Association for Applied Econometrics, and one University Distinguished Professor.
