William C. Ridley (william.ridley@colorado.edu)

I am a PhD candidate and graduate instructor in the Department of Economics at the University of Colorado. I'll be on the job market in 2018–19 and interviewing at the 2019 ASSA meeting in Atlanta.

My research focuses on issues in international trade and investment, with a particular emphasis on empirically quantifying the effects of trade policy. My recent work on China's investment rules has been written up in venues such as The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Science Monitor, and policy blogs such as VoxEU and ProMarket.org.
