Nancy H. Chau is Professor of Economics at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell since 1999. Her research interests fall under three main areas: international trade, regional economics, and economic development, with particular emphasis on the economics of information and uncertainty. Recent research focuses on index measurement of trade restrictiveness that accounts for second-best argumentation of trade policies, market-based approaches to foster labour and environmental standards via international trade, and the impact of direct farm payments and import barriers on export promotion.
