Erik James

I am a 6th year PhD student in Wharton's Applied Economics program at the University of Pennsylvania. My primary field is public economics. I study food assistance programs, the food retail environment, household nutrition, and food banks.

Prior to graduate school, I worked at J-PAL North America / MIT and completed my BA in economics at the University of Chicago.

I will be on the job market during the 2024-2025 academic year.
