Jordan J. Norris


I'm an Assistant Professor of Economics at New York University Abu Dhabi. I received my PhD from Northwestern University in 2019. Between these I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Aarhus School of Business and Social Sciences. I hold a Masters in Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge.

My research interests are in Spatial Economics, broadly dealing with how location affects economic activity. My research overlaps with topics in International Trade, Networks, and Macroeconomics. 

I'm a co-founder and co-organizer of the Middle East Spatial and International Economics (MESIE) conference. Program: 2023, 2024.
