5 Scholars Join Econ Faculty

This fall, Duke Economics is thrilled to bring five new faculty members to campus.

Two will be joining the department this year. Three will be teaching and researching in person for the first time, having completed post-docs elsewhere. All will bring exciting, essential expertise to Duke.

Their research covers some of the world's most pressing problems, including racial inequalities in policing, gender inequality in the labor market, education and child welfare policies, the impact of inflation and exchange rates on international trade and how emissions regulations are influenced by the market.

“The department, and Duke at large, is extremely fortunate that these scholars are joining us. We are incredibly excited to see the impact that their research and teaching have at Duke and beyond," said Economics Chair James Roberts.
