Barton Willage, PhD
Assistant Professor
Department of Economics
Louisiana State University

I am an assistant professor of economics at Louisiana State University. My research areas are primarily health economics and public economics. Generally I am interested in the economic lessons we can learn from policy variation, and particularly how government interventions impact health.

Before coming to LSU, I earned my PhD in economics at Cornell University. And before that, I earned a MPA in Policy Analysis from Indiana University, a MA from the University of Chicago, and a BA from Beloit College.
