As an expert in economic demography, economic history and applied microeconomics, Logan can provide insight on the racial disparities of the economic impact of the coronavirus and how the lapse in federal unemployment benefits is affecting the economy.

Logan’s economic history research looks into how the human standard of living has changed over time. He’s currently focused on historical health patterns, racial discrimination, political economy, mortality, morbidity and racial disparities in health.

His economic demography research has covered everything from dowries in South Asia to the economic, social and health impacts of male sex work. Outside of his two larger areas of focus, Logan has also researched the economics of sports betting and college football polls.
