Carlianne Patrick

Assistant Professor

Patrick’s primary research fields are urban and regional economics, public finance, and economic development policy. Her current research areas include interjurisdictional competition for mobile capital, job creation effects of economic development incentives, public finance impacts on the spatial allocation of economic activity, women’s entrepreneurship, large firm spillovers, and estimation consistency in the presence of unobserved heterogeneity and productivity shocks. Patrick is also an International Council of Economic Development Certified Economic Developer (CEcD). Her experience as a local economic development practitioner helps to ground her research in a ‘real world’ institutional framework and gives it a decidedly policy-oriented focus.
