Jillian Carr

Assistant Professor

I'm an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. I received my PhD from Texas A&M University and my BA from Rhodes College in economics and math.

My research fields are applied microeconomics and labor economics, and my current research is on the economics of crime, urban economics and law and economics. I've studied a variety of topics including Section 8 Housing Vouchers, the effect of juvenile curfews on gun violence, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps). 

Currently, I teach undergraduate Public Finance and Taxation and graduate Public Economics.
