Kelsi Gabrielle Hobbs

PhD Candidate, Department of Economics

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Economics at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I expect to receive my PhD in May 2021.

I am an Applied Microeconomist whose research emphasizes Public Economics, Urban Economics, and Innovation Economics. I am broadly interested in topics that affect low- to moderate-income individuals and families. I pursue research questions that can influence Federal, state, and/or local policy decisions aimed at improving our communities, particularly those that are marginalized. In my job market paper, I study the effect of state-level unemployment insurance benefits on county-level eviction filing rates.

I am presenting my job market paper at the APPAM 2020 Fall Research Conference and the SEA 90th Annual Meeting. I will be interviewing as part of the European Job Market 2020 and the ASSA 2021 Virtual Conference. I am also available for interviews on demand.
