Welcome!

lariviere-2I am an economist at Microsoft in Preston McAfee’s group in the Office of the Chief Economist.  My main research interests are Industrial Organization, Environmental & Public Economics, and Behavioral Economics.  I use applied theory to inform microeconometric and experimental empirical techniques.  I graduated from UC San Diego with a PhD in Economics and UC Berkeley with a BA in Economics.

I am also an affiliate faculty in the econ department at University of Washington and an adjunct assistant professor of economics at University of Tennessee, where I am also a Fellow for Energy and Environmental Policy at the Baker Center for Public Policy.
