Headshot of Ian Coxhead
I study the economics of development, especially the effects of globalization and global market shocks on production, employment, wages and household income and welfare. Within developing economies I focus on the labor market channel of adjustment: migration, occupational mobility and educational decisions. I also study the impacts and incidence of domestic policies on growth, trade and environment. I am a specialist in the economies of East and Southeast Asia.
