Duke Economics, along with economics departments at North Carolina State University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, will be hosting the first annual Triangle Applied Micro Conference.

Costas Meghir (Yale) and Petra Todd (University of Pennsylvania) have been announced as keynote speakers. The conference will also include papers in development, labor and education, and public, presented by faculty and graduate students from all three institutions. 

Co-organizer Arnaud Maurel said, “The main idea of the conference is to foster interactions between the applied micro groups in all three institutions - but also between different applied micro groups within our own institutions. More generally, I think interactions across fields is incredibly valuable to the research process. This has historically been an important strength of Duke Economics, and, to me, this conference is a natural continuation of this tradition.” He will be organizing the conference with Andres Hincapie (UNC) and Melinda Morrill (NC State).

Duke will be hosting the conference, which will take place on Friday, April 26 2019, at the Sanford School of Public Policy. To register, please visit the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/WlQJV5iQMRQOHLgS2.
