Professor Alexander Hill joined the Economics faculty at Arizona State as Clinical Assistant Professor in Fall 2017 after receiving his PhD in Economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research focuses on the intersection of Industrial Organization and Environmental Economics, using a blend of theory and empirical methods to answer a wide range of questions about the dynamics of market entry and exit, optimal government regulatory policy, and the associated environmental impacts. His particular focus is energy markets, with a background in both the electricity and natural gas sectors. Professor Hill currently teaches both Principles and Intermediate Macroeconomics.
