Welcome, مرحباً, bienvenue

My name is Youssef A. Benasser, and I am a trade economist. I received my PhD in the Spring of 2022 from the University of Oregon. I specialize in international trade policy analysis, with complementary interests in applied econometrics, financial economics and political economy.

I am currently affiliated with Reed College in Portland and will be joining Bard College as an Assistant Professor in August 2023.

When I am not thinking about economic and trade policy, I can be found playing oud, performing on stage, or reading queer sci-fi and YA literature.
