Peter K. Schott, newly named as the Juan Trippe Professor of International Economics, focuses his research on how firms and workers respond to globalization.
Schott’s most recent projects examine the decline of U.S. manufacturing employment during the 2000s, the relative export quality of developing versus developed economies, and the relationship between trade policy and firm productivity.
A graduate of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Schott earned his Ph.D. from the Anderson Graduate School of Management at the University of California-Los Angeles. He joined the Yale School of Management (SOM) in 1999 as assistant professor of economics and later became a full professor of economics at SOM with a secondary appointment in the Department of Economics. Since 2014, Schott has also served as executive director of the Yale Census Research Data Center, a branch of the New York Research Data Center.
