Regional economic implications of changes in the structure of GPNs


I am interested in recruiting MA students with expertise/proficiency with GIS and who may be interested in working in the area of Global Production Networks as they relate to changing regional economic structure and outcomes in North America, China or Europe. Students also interested in working with World Input-Output Data and Models would be particularly welcome.

Research Areas:

  • Economic Geography
  • Global Production Networks
  • World Input-Output Analysis
