Co-Authorships Between Students and Faculty

Brian Beach, a fifth-year student, and Prof. Werner Troesken working on their joint research project "Water Purity and Human Capital Formation." Martin Saavedra, a former Pitt graduate and currently an Assistant Professor of Economics at Oberlin College, is also a co-author of this project – November, 2014

The collegiality in our program also extends to the interaction between students and faculty; during academic year 2013-2014, nine graduate students were co-authoring papers with Pitt faculty members. Our proximity to Carnegie Mellon University facilitates research collaboration between our students and their faculty as well.
