My name is Ed Rubin, and I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Oregon.
I research the economics of the environment and inequality.
More broadly, I aim to answer policy-relevant questions about social equity and environmental quality using tools from economics, econometrics, statistics and data science.
More specifically, my research looks at how individuals respond to environmental regulation and environmental quality—and how these responses may render policy inefficient and/or unequal.
I love data, (beautiful) graphs and maps, the outdoors, bikes, photography, and people. I enjoy consuming pizza, phở, tacos, coffee, and computational power. I’m a bunch of other things too.
In a few other professional items, I:
- started TWEEDS with several friends—The Workshop in Environmental Economics and Data Science,
- help run OSWEET, an online workshop where grad. students and early-career faculty present work on enviro., energy, and transportation economics,
- co-wrote a textbook on Data Science and Public Policy.
Please look around and/or contact me.
