Biography

Nicolai Kuminoff is an Associate Professor in the Economics Department at Arizona State University and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research aims to infer consumer preferences for non-market amenities from their sorting behavior in markets for housing, labor, and health insurance. Recent projects include developing satellite accounts for non-market expenditures, predicting the distributional welfare effects of choice architecture policies, examining how long-term pollution exposure affects cognitive functioning and decision making, and estimating the value of a statistical life. Professor Kuminoff’s research has been funded by EPA, NIH, NSF and other agencies, and published in journals such as the American Economic Review, International Economic Review, Journal of Economic Literature, Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Journal of Urban Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics, Review of Environmental Economics and Policy, and Journal of Urban Economics.
