Dr. Lily Hsueh is an Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Economics at the ASU School of Public Affairs. Her areas of expertise are natural resource and environmental economics and policy, political economy, governance, applied econometrics. Hsueh’s current research investigates how different forms of alternative governance systems interact and shape the private provision of public goods and the management of natural resources and the environment. Her previous and ongoing projects examine the emergence, evolution, and impacts of voluntary/private approaches (e.g., industry self-regulation) and market-based policies (e.g., cap and trade) in climate change, ocean and marine resources, and toxic chemicals. Outlets for Hsueh’s work have included the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, Journal of Environmental Management, Environmental Science & Policy, Marine Policy, Governance, Regulation & Governance, among others. Funders for her work include the National Research Council, National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation. Prior to joining ASU, Hsueh held the National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.
At ASU, Hsueh teaches courses in economics of public policy to both undergraduate and graduate students. She is a recipient of the 2016-17 Distinguished Teaching Award.
Before academia, Hsueh was a Senior Analyst in Economic Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. She received a Ph.D. in Public Policy & Management from the University of Washington, MSc in Economics from University College London, and a BA in Economics with a minor in Environmental Economics and Policy from University of California-Berkeley.
