Professor Becky Haney has her Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Chicago with a specialization in Labor Economics. She also has a Master's of Divinity from Duke University and is interested in the economics of religious organizations and the interaction of faith and economic activity. Her previous positions include assistant professor in the Public Policy Institute of Duke University and Associate Director of Pulpit & Pew, a social scientific examination of congregations and pastoral leaders at the beginning of the 21st century.

Academic interests

Her research interests include the economics of sustainability, resource depletion, and energy transitions. She works on the forefront of economic research methodology by applying agent-based computer simulation models to these macroeconomic phenomena. I would remove the 4 points under Academic Interests for now.
