IES Postdoctoral Fellow

Princeton University

Welcome! I am an IES Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University. My research focuses on macroeconomics, spatial economics, and international trade, with a particular focus on how the spatial distribution of economic activity affects economic welfare in the long run.

Following the 2023-24 academic year, I will join UCLA Economics as an Assistant Professor.

My CV is available here.

Reach me at lcrews[at]princeton.edu.

Princeton graduate students and thesis advisees can book a meeting with me.
