School of Economics to Welcome Six New Faculty in 2023

Posted April 14, 2023

The School of Economics hired six new faculty members for the 2023-24 academic year for professor, assistant professor, and lecturer positions. 

Jason Lindo, a professor of economics at Texas A&M University, will join the School's growing roster of health economists. 

"My body of work has focused primarily on youth and topics concerning health and violence," Lindo writes. "My recent and ongoing work is especially focused on documenting the effects of changes in access to reproductive healthcare. This includes an evaluation of the Colorado Family Planning Initiative and an evaluation of the abortion clinic closures precipitated by Texas HB-2, which were at the center of the US Supreme Court case, Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt."

Gaurav Doshi and Bobby Harris will join the faculty as assistant professors of energy and environmental economics. Doshi graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and says his work "assesses the impact of energy policies on fossil fuel firm behavior, incentives to technology adoption in the renewable sector, and the transition to renewable energy in the US." 

Harris is currently a postdoctoral scholar with the Initiative on Equity in Energy and Environmental Economics at the University of California, Berkeley.

"My research and teaching interests are in energy and environmental economics, industrial organization, and public economics," he writes. "Much of my existing work has implications for climate policy and the energy transition."

In addition to Doshi and Harris, Manho Kang will join the School of Economics as an assistant professor of international trade. He comes from the University of California, Davis, where he completed his Ph.D. in 2023. Kang's recent publications include work on corporate lobbying, trade policy and global health governance, and more.

Finally, the School of Economics is excited to welcome Sam Wunderly and Danny Woodbury as lecturers for the upcoming academic year. Wunderly is a provost fellow in economics at Emory University, where his research interests include health, labor, and game theory. Woodbury joins us from Young Harris College, where he is an assistant professor of economics and finance, with a focus on tax base mobility and fiscal federalism issues in public finance.
