Portrait of Jacob LaRiviere

Jacob LaRiviere

Senior Researcher


My main research interests are Industrial Organization, Environmental & Public Economics, and Behavioral Economics. I received my bachelor’s degree in economics from UC Berkeley and my MA and PhD both from the UC San Diego. I use applied theory to inform microeconometric and experimental empirical techniques.   I sit in the Office of the Chief Economist working with Preston McAfee.  I’m also an adjunct assistant professor of economics at the University of Tennessee, where I was before coming to Microsoft, and affiliate faculty member in the University of Washington economics department.
