School of International Service

  • Dr Bernhofen joined the SIS faculty in the Fall of 2013. Prior to moving to Washington, he was Professor of International Economics and Director of the Globalisation and Economic Policy Research Centre at the University of Nottingham. He has published widely on the theoretical, empirical and historical aspects of international trade and his research has been funded by the the National Science Foundation, the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is best known for exploiting the 19th century opening up of Japan as a natural experiment to provide rigorous tests of general equilibrium trade theory. His current research project on quantifying the impact of the container revolution on world trade has been discussed in media outlets such as The Economist and Foreign Policy.
