A research study by Professor Paul Ferraro is among the top-five most cited articles of the last three years in the journal Resource and Energy Economics, according to the publication. Ferraro’s article, “Heterogeneous treatment effects and mechanisms in information-based environmental policies: Evidence from a large-scale field experiment,” examines the roots of success for a program that was designed to encourage voluntary water conservation during a severe drought in the southeastern United States.
Ferraro joined the Carey Business School in 2015 as a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor. He also holds an appointment with the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering.
A 2016 study by Assistant Professor Ge Bai was among the top-10 most read studies in the journal Health Affairs. Bai’s article “A More Detailed Understanding of Factors Associated With Hospital Profitability” was co-written with Professor Gerard Anderson of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The study appeared in the May 12 edition of the journal.
Bai joined the Carey Business School in August 2016. Her research was conducted as a member of the faculty at Washington and Lee University.
