Nouri Najjar

EEPRN Student Researcher, 2015-2016

Nouri is an applied micro-economist working in the areas of environmental economics, industrial organization, and program evaluation. His main work is on the design and evaluation of environmental policy, with a focus on firms. His job market paper examines the clean-up of manufacturing in response to environmental regulation. To do this, he uses a new and confidential plant-level dataset to estimate the effect of a change in Canadian environmental policy on the adoption of cleaner production processes by producers, the reallocation of output across producers, and producer exit.

During his work with SPI, he conducted research for an EEPRN project entitled: "The Costs and Benefits of Environmental Regulation: Evidence from the Canadian Environmental Protection Act". This work was completed under the supervision of Jevan Cherniwchan.

Upon completion of his PhD, Nouri moved to London, ON where he is now an Assistant Professor of Business, Economics and Public Policy in the Ivey Business School at Western University. Details on his current research can be found here.
