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 joining the faculty in the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Fall 2019.

My research focuses on issues in international trade and investment, with a particular emphasis on 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.
