The Department of Economics at the University of Notre Dame conducts impactful research using the best available theoretical and empirical methods in the discipline, all while fostering the Catholic mission of the University. With specialties in macroeconomics, applied micro economics, development economics, and game theory, Notre Dame economics faculty and graduate students work together to find answers to a wide array of difficult economic, social, and policy-relevant questions.

“Most of the research in our department is problem-driven and our faculty are striving to find solutions to some of the most important questions of the day,” said Department Chair William Evans, Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Economics, and co-founder of the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities.

In a new video, Evans talks about some of the department’s pioneering research projects and its approach to graduate education and faculty development. The video also features Kasey Buckles, Brian and Jeannelle Brady Associate Professor of Economics; Joseph Kaboski, David F. and Erin M. Seng Foundation Professor of Economics; and Eric Sims, Michael P. Grace II Associate Professor of Economics.
