Ideas:
“  Lately, my research with Alexander McQuoid has been focused on identifying the relationships between various economic outcomes and mortality. I'm left wondering if that makes me an economortician? My other interests include: International Trade: By training, I am a trade economist. I have a working paper forthcoming investigating the impact of international integration on mortality. Applied Econometrics- Above and beyond using econometrics for various empirical investigations, I am working on a paper about bias in the synthetic control method. Empirical Industrial Organization- I have some work on entry and exit in the retail industry, I also enjoy thinking about auctions.  ”
