Randy Walsh, PhD., MQE Director

Randall Walsh, Ph.D., Director and Professor of Economics

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh and a Research Associate with the National Bureau of Economic Research. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh I was on the faculty of the University of Colorado. My research is focused in the area of urban and environmental economics. In more recent work I have been particularly interested in looking at these issues through the lenses of economic history and political economy.
