Welcome to my website!

Hussain Hadah

I am a post-doctoral fellow at Tulane University’s Department of Economics and Murphy Institute.

I research topics in applied microeconomics such as discrimination, race, identity, mental health, and immigration. Recently, I’ve studied the effect of having a Hispanic last name on labor market outcomes, effect of ethnic attitudes on self-reported Hispanic identity, and peer effect in mental health.

I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Houston in 2023. I recieved my BS in Economics from Arizona State University.

Outside of economics, I enjoy running with my two dogs, watching college and professional sports, and trying new restaurants.

Thank you for visiting my website, and I invite you to explore further to learn more about my research and interests.
