Hello, world! My name is Brian Albrecht. I am a Ph.D. student in economics at the University of Minnesota. For the 2015-2016 academic year, I am also an Adam Smith Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and a Humane Studies Fellow.
My research interests focus on the role of information and political institutions on industrial organization. Before my Ph.D. program, I earned an M.Sc. in the Economics of Public Policy from the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics and a B.A. in Physics and Political Science from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN.
