Cornell Economics Community Attends 2018 AEA Conference

By: Sarah Schupp, 
Fri, 01/05/2018

Department faculty, field faculty, and graduate students attended the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Economic Association (AEA). The AEA, in conjunction with 58 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA), hold a three-day meeting to present papers on general economics topics.

Additionally, our Ph.D. Job Market Candidates interviewed throughout the annual meeting which is traditionally held in Philadelphia during the first weekend in January.

The AEA interviewed select poster presenters during the conference to discuss their research and the broader implications of their work. Graduate Student, Lucy Xiaolu Wang, was interviewed about her research on the role of health information technology in the opioid drug crisis.  Lucy hand-collected data on states’ policies that facilitate the integration of prescription drug monitoring programs into physicians’ workflows and enable interstate data sharing. She finds that states with this interconnected platform significantly reduced opioid-related mortality and morbidity.

Faculty and graduate students are served in a variety of positions; participating as presenters, discussants, panelists, and chairs.  The following is a list of service and work presented by economics department faculty, field faculty, and graduate students at the 2018 AEA Annual Meeting.
