Professor Smith teaches a wide range of courses in the Economics and Business Department, including Principles of Economics, Quantitative Methods, Econometrics, and Health Economics. He loves sharing with students the ways in which economic theories and models impact their everyday lives. He also relishes the opportunity to guide students on the various career paths they may take if they choose to major in economics.

Professor Smith’s research primarily focuses on Health Economics and Labor Economics, with a secondary focus on Applied Economics, Financial Economics, and Economic History. His most recent research examines how to improve competition in the healthcare industry, particularly between health insurance firms, and how exposure to temperature shocks during pregnancy can affect a child’s labor market outcomes later in life.
