Biography:

Andrew Bernard has been on the faculty at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College since 1999. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford in economics in 1991 and was on the faculty at MIT and Yale prior to coming to Tuck. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (Cambridge, US), a research fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (London, UK) and a member of the Executive Committee of the Conference on Research in Income and Wealth (Washington DC). Professor Bernard studies firm responses to globalization. In recent papers, he has documented the emergence of factory-less goods producers in the US, revisited traditional views of deindustrialization and explored the dynamics of new exporters and the role of intermediaries in global trade. Professor Bernard was named by Thompson Reuters as one of the World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds in 2014 and is among the 100 most cited economists. In addition to being published in top academic journals such as the American Economic Review, the Quarterly Journal of Economics and the Review of Economic Studies, his research has been featured on CNN, CNBC, Good Morning America, MSNBC, NPR's Morning Edition, the Marketplace Morning Report, the BBC, and in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, the Economist, Nikkei, Fortune, and Business Week.

Current Areas of Research:

A primary theme of his current research focuses on the evolution of global (and domestic) production networks and the consequences for firm performance.
