John A. KNowles, Economics

I am a professor of economics at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada.

My main field of research is macro-economics, broadly defined. I specialize in developing equilibrium models to analyse micro-level data sets, usually in the field of family economics, but including also some early work on racial profiling. Before joining SFU in 2014, I was at the University of Southampton, in the U.K. Prior to that I was at the University of Pennsylvania, from 1999 to 2008. I completed my PhD at the University of Rochester, N.Y.

I am currently supervising an excellent PhD student, Yaser Sattari, who is now on the job market. Click here for his web site.
