Annaliese Winton obtained a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Towson University in 2019 and is currently a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the John E. Walker Department of Economics at Clemson University, with a focus in agricultural, environmental, and natural resource economics. She is particularly interested in topics related to sustainability, climate change, and risk. Her dissertation examines the role of information in climate adaptation through agricultural and environmental applications. These applications include irrigation adoption in the southeastern United States and the capitalization of hurricane risk in housing markets.
In addition to her role as a Ph.D. student, Annaliese has worked as a research assistant to Dr. Thomas Hazlett on topics of antitrust, telecommunications, and digital platforms. Her primary contributions involved generating novel datasets to be used for analysis and appear as figures and tables in academic publications. Her research assistance has contributed to work that has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Regulation, and the Journal of Law and Economics. Annaliese also teaches Principles of Macroeconomics at Clemson University. In class, she guides students through applied activities, teaching them how to navigate and utilize economic databases and Excel.
In summer 2023, Anna will be presenting her work on the capitalization of hurricane risk in housing markets at the Western Economic Association International Annual Conference in San Diego, CA.
