Assistant Professor of Economics, Middlebury College
Marquise J. McGraw joined the Economics faculty at Middlebury College as an assistant professor in the fall of 2015. His primary research interests are in urban economics, with a particular focus on the transportation industry and its relationship to local-level economic outcomes.
Marquise received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in May 2015. His dissertation used the opening of the aviation system in the United States as a natural experiment to show the effects that infrastructure have had on city level outcomes such as employment and population. His current research continues to investigate the role of aviation and rail in shaping the urban environment and economic activity.
Marquise has taught courses in a variety of applied micro fields, including Urban Economics and Industrial Organization. He received a Teaching Effectiveness Award from UC Berkeley. He has also taught for the American Economics Association's Summer Training Program, which aims to increase the number of economists from historically underrepresented groups.
Marquise received his BA in Economics in 2006 from Cornell University, and is originally from the Bronx, New York.
