World-class faculty

The Department of Economics currently houses more than 30 active faculty members, including an exceptional group of young talent with a current complement of five assistant professors in 2018. Our research interests are diverse, but we share a common vision: the application of empirically and theoretically rigorous analysis to many important questions in economics.


Many of our professors have won teaching awards for their excellent course instruction. Our faculty goes above and beyond to make opportunities, such as Research Assistanceships for undergraduate students, available for students who have a strong interest in economics, such.


The Department of Economics at Simon Fraser University is ranked third in Canada for research productivity, which heavily features publications in the top five economics journals. Our faculty have produced world-renowned research and have strong ties to the international economics community.
