Scott Langford, PhD


I am a post-doctoral research fellow in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University. I completed my Ph.D. in Public Policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I was also a researcher at CREATE, an economic development research center affiliated with the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at Kenan-Flagler Business School. 

Recent events demonstrate the importance of understanding the drivers of economic growth, both through "normal" times and crises. My research uses rigorous econometric techniques to investigate how health policy and local finance impacts economic resilience. My teaching interests, in econometric analysis, research design, public finance, health policy and economic development, draw upon these experiences.
