In recent years much of Dr. Levine’s research has shifted understanding and overcoming barriers to improving health in poor nations. This research has examined both how to increase demand for health-promoting goods such as safer cookstoves and water filters, and how to change health-related behaviors such as handwashing with soap.
Levine was an undergraduate at Berkeley, and has taught at the Haas School since receiving his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 1987. Levine has also had visiting positions at the Sloan School of Management at MIT, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.
