Timothy Halliday Associate Professor of Economics
University of Hawaii at Manoa
Hello! I am an empirical
microeconomist who works at the intersection of health and
labor economics. Most of my work deals with rich
countries, mostly, the United States, but I often work on
topics pertinent to developing countries as well. My
research primarily focuses on health disparities,
inequality, and migration. To help me answer some of
the questions that I ask, I often employ dynamic panel data
and latent variable models. I earned my PhD from
Princeton. I am married with one child. We live
on the windward side of Oahu.
