Elif Burcu Dilden

Applied Microeconomics, Industrial Organization, Public Economics 

Elif Dilden HeadshotI am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Kansas State University, and fully expect to complete degree requirements by May 2021. My research interests are in the field of applied microeconomics with an emphasis on industrial organization and public economics. My job market paper empirically analyzes how a manufacturer’s preexisting number of vertically differentiated product lines and the number of horizontally differentiated products within each product line affects its bargaining power with retailers.

Since Fall 2017, as a primary instructor, I have independently designed and developed undergraduate courses including Principles of Macroeconomics, Principles of Microeconomics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Managerial Economics. Due to my teaching strengths, I have been awarded the Department of Economics Graduate Teaching Award for excellence in undergraduate teaching in 2020.

I will be available for interviews at the EEA Job Market Meeting in December 2020 and the ASSA/AEA meeting in January 2021.
