Overview

Nancy Chau joined the faculty in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell in 1999. Prior to joining the Cornell faculty, she was an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and a research fellow at the Center for Development Research at the University of Bonn.

Research Focus

Professor Chau's research interests fall under three main areas: international trade, regional economics, and economic development, with particular emphasis on the economics of information and uncertainty. Recent research focuses on index measurement of trade restrictiveness that accounts for second-best argumentation of trade policies, market-based approaches to foster labor and environmental standards via international trade, and the impact of direct farm payments and import barriers on export promotion.
