Alex Pelham
University of Massachusetts Boston


My name is Alex Pelham and I am a visiting assistant professor at University of Massachusetts Boston. I received my PhD in economics from Colorado State University in 2018 and have taught economics at the undergraduate level since 2013. My primary research focuses on open-economy macroeconomic policy for developing countries. More specifically I look at the growth and distributional effects of trade policy between interdependent countries. I am also interested in using novel methods of non-market valuation to assess the value of public lands.
