Developing interesting questions in applied economics
Thinking about data
William Duncan is an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics at Baker University. He has his PhD in Economics from the University of Kansas. He is also a research fellow at the Midwest Policy Institute, a think tank he helped found to conduct applied economic research on issues of particular interest to the middle part of the United States of America. His research tends to focus on labor, well-being, and economic opportunity. Beyond these topics, though, he is actively involved in projects that look at modeling trade policy, biostatistics, and building infrastructure for a better data science workforce in Kansas and the United States.
