Richard S. Braddock 1963 Professor in Economics
Chair Of Economics Dept.

I enjoy working with detailed data to enhance our understanding of why children and youth turn out the way they do. I am also involved in a series of studies to examine how students make choices about college going and how policy makers might influence that decision-making process. And I teach a senior seminar in finance, which is tremendously rewarding.
