Kelsey Carlston

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Utah Department of Economics. After growing up in rural Appalachia and then moving to Southern California, I became very interested in regional differences in economic outcomes. My current research is on the causes and effects of geographic patterns of intergenerational mobility. I teach health economics and econometrics. I will be on the job market in Fall 2021.
