Peter Blair

Peter Q. Blair is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Clemson University.

For the IRP Scholar-in-Residence Program he chose to visit the Center on Poverty and Inequality, Stanford University.

Blair earned his Ph.D. from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, in 2015.

His research in economics falls into three categories: (1) labor market discrimination, (2) the economics of higher education, and (3) housing market segregation. The unifying theme across these primary research areas is the study of labor, higher education, and housing markets as engines of inequality. The goal of our research is first to document inequality in these institutional settings and then to understand the mechanisms driving inequality in order to propose and evaluate potential policy remedies.
