About the Author

Darren Grant is currently an economics professor at Sam Houston State University in East Texas. He has previously served as a Navy contractor, a health management program director, and a high school teacher and coach, in various towns and cities across the South. He has published applied research in leading field journals in policy analysis, health economics, the economics of education, industrial organization, public choice, behavioral economics, and labor economics, including the Journal of Human Resources, the Journal of Health Economics, the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. The empirical models used in this research run the gamut of those found in the profession: parametric and nonparametric, linear and nonlinear, reduced form and structural, and everything in between. Much of what he has learned about doing economic research he has learned the hard way.
