PhD Candidate, Department of Economics
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Hi, I'm Will Queen, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Economics at UNCG. I'm going on the job market in 2021-2022!
I'm an applied microeconomist who specializes in health, labor, applied econometrics, and policy evaluation. Broadly speaking, I'm interested in topics where mental health, substance use, and economics intersect.
My job market paper estimates the direct and indirect effects of adolescent depression on adult earnings. My other recent research focuses on the cost-effectiveness of mental health pilot programs for youth involved with Juvenile Justice in North Carolina.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments:
