Ana Espinola-Arredondo, associate professor with the School of Economic Sciences, is a recently named co-editor of the academic journal Economic Inquiry.
Published since 1962, and formerly known as the Western Economic Journal, Economic Inquiry is one of the top scholarly journals in the field, with 22 Nobel laureates among its authors.
As co-editor, Espinola-Arredondo will assist in selection and publication of articles supporting international research into all areas of economics, assisting the journal in its mission of making research advances accessible to economists across every field. She sees the role as privilege, and a way to make a constructive contribution.
“As a gatekeeper, I can help ensure that quality of research and their potential policy implications are as rigorous as possible,” Espinola-Arredondo said. “At a time when so much of the information we encounter may be false or biased, high quality standards are critical.”
At the School of Economic Sciences, Espinola-Arredondo studies environmental economics, game theory, industrial organization and applied microeconomics. She is a past Fulbright U.S. Scholar and recipient of the Sylvia Lane Mentor Fellowship.
