Jenny Hawkins (Ph.D., 2011, The University of Arizona) investigates topics in industrial organization and the economic analysis of law. Her current research spans several areas.  One project concerns monopoly behavior and the assembly of property rights.  Jenny also is evaluating niche and mass market advertising strategies through rotations, as opposed to shifts, in demand curves.  Other work applies models of Bayesian statistics to event studies used in securities litigation and antitrust investigations. Finally, she is eager to continue work on a project investigating antitrust enforcement during the 1930s. Jenny currently teaches courses on the economic analysis of law and principles of economics.
