Daniel L. Millimet, SMU
I am a Professor in the Department of Economics at SMU, as well as a research fellow at IZA, a senior co-editor of Advances in Econometrics, an associate editor of Empirical Economics, and a co-editor of the new Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. My research focuses on uncovering causal relationships between environmental policy, trade policy, and environmental and economic outcomes, as well as between public policies and child outcomes. I teach courses in labor economics, economics of education, and econometrics.
