John Eric Humphries is a Cowles Foundation postdoctoral associate at Yale University and will be an assistant professor in economics at Yale University starting in July 2018. His research focuses on topics in labor economics and applied microeconomics. In particular, he studies how educational and career dynamics are affected by public policy. Much of my work considers how policies affect the acquisition of human capital and the role of cognitive and non-cognitive skills in the labor market.
Humphries received an Honors A.B., M.A., and Ph.D. a;; in Economics from the University of Chicago in 2009, 2013, and 2017 respectively.
