Riley Wilson

I am currently a fifth year student interested in both public and labor economics. My current research explores the migration response to fracking, focusing on geographic heterogeneity and the role of information. I am also exploring impacts of fracking on other markets, including the education system and marriage and fertility decisions. Additionally, I have work looking at the impact of the EITC on within year labor supply decisions and employment stability. I am also interested in behavioral responses to taxation, tax incidence, and the interaction of government transfer programs.
