Chandler S. Reilly


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the economics department at George Mason University on the job market this year and graduate fellow in the F.A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center.

My research interests include applied microeconomics and political economy. My work studying the economics of bureaucracy has been published in Constitutional Political Economy and the Journal of Entrepreneurship and Public Policy. Those articles and other working papers examine bureaucratic responses to federal regulation of government-funded defense laboratories within the Department of Defense , differences in the structure of research funding across government agencies, and the creation of rents for colleges and universities by the Department of Education.

My teaching experience includes online and in-person undergraduate economics courses in mathematical economics, econometrics, macroeconomics, and environmental economics.
