Will Queen

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, and program evaluation. Broadly speaking, I enjoy using econometric methods to study challenging topics that are meaningful to decision-makers.

My job market paper studies why youth with depression earn less as adults. My other recent research focuses on the cost-effectiveness of mental health pilot programs for at-risk youth in North Carolina.

I will be attending or presenting at the following conferences this academic year:

  • American Economic Association Meeting (ASSA) in Boston

  • American Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) in Austin

  • Southern Economic Association (SEA) in Houston
