Current Research

Andrew's research focuses on applied econometrics in the domains of labor, trade, and economic geography, particularly with respect to the distributional outcomes of workers. His current research investigates the transition of production in agglomeration economies from an orientation around sectoral output, to a structure defined by occupational task inputs, and the consequences this has for the geographical distribution of income. Other works in progress examine the impacts of NAFTA on gender wages differentials in the U.S. via occupational segregation, and CGE modeling of wage changes due to the weight distribution between intermediate and final goods tariffs. His methodological interests include spatial models and simulation of counterfactual statistical distributions.
