CV: Curriculum Vitae
Patrick Bayer joined the Duke faculty in 2006, becoming a professor and chair of the department of economics in 2009. Before teaching at Duke, he was a professor at Yale for six years, during which time he was also a visiting research associate at the Public Policy Institute of California, a visiting economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and a faculty research fellow and research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Prior to beginning his teaching career at Yale, Patrick received his Ph.D. in economics from Stanford University and his B.A. in mathematics from Princeton University. Patrick’s research studies have focused on such subjects as racial inequality and segregation, urban housing, education, industrial organization, and crime. In the last few years, he has received research grants from the National Science Foundation for 2007-2010 to fund his research on housing market dynamics, and from the Social Science and Humanities Council of Canada for 2007-2010 for his research on competition in local schooling markets. His most recent work has been published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Journal of Political Economy, the Journal of Environmental Economics, and the Economic Inquiry. He is currently working on projects that explore housing price dynamics, racial discrimination in home sales, dynamic equilibrium in city systems, micro-dynamics of neighborhood discrimination, and race as it pertains to the justice system. Patrick has been invited to share his ideas and findings at countless university seminars and presentations. He has presented for the Association for Public Policy and Management, the Atlantic Economic Society, the European Public Choice Society, and the Institute for Research on Poverty. He has also spoken at universities across the nation, including Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, Johns Hopkins, Duke, New York, Syracuse, Yale, and many more. Although his time spent on research is extensive, Patrick also takes time to serve as advisor for graduate students. His performance, as such, earned him the recognition of honorable mention as best graduate advisor for 2004-2005. Over the years, he has served as advisor for nineteen students from universities around the world, held the chair position for the junior recruiting committee in the Duke economics department, been on the senior recruiting committee for the Duke economics department, and was the director of undergraduate studies for the economics department at Yale. Patrick also conducts referee service for over twenty economic journals.
Bayer's research focuses on wide range of subjects including racial inequality and segregation, social interactions, housing markets, education, and crime. He has received numerous grants from the National Science Foundation, Social Science and Humanities Council of Canada, and the US Department of Education. His most recent work has been published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Journal of Political Economy, the Journal of Environmental Economics, and American Economics Association P&P. He is currently working on projects that explore housing price dynamics, racial discrimination in home sales, dynamic equilibrium in a national system of cities, the microdynamics of neighborhood discrimination, and the impact of the racial composition of juries on criminal trial outcomes.
