Nina Pavcnik

Niehaus Family Professor in International Studies

My research interests are at the intersection of international trade, development, and industrial organization.  My research examines how households, workers, and firms respond to globalization. My current research projects investigate the consequences of large-scale trade policy reforms for economic growth and inequality.
