Daniel Herrera-Araujo

Assistant-Professeur à l'Université Paris Dauphine-PSL, chercheur associé à la Chaire Économie du Climat et à la Chaire Régulation et Gouvernance

After obtaining a Ph.D. at Toulouse School of Economics and post-doc fellowship at Paris School of Economics, Daniel Herrera-Araujo obtained a position as Assistant Professor in Economics at Université Paris-Dauphine. Daniel’s current research interests are in environmental economics, health economics and empirical industrial organization. All his projects use a combination of economic theory, reduced and structural empirical methods and seek to provide insights into policy relevant questions. Some examples of his on-going projects are:

  • Impact of US below-cost pricing banning laws on grocery retail prices and consumer welfare.
  • The role of competition in the French hospital market on quality and service provision.
  • Impact of health insurance networks on downstream competition in the French eyewear market.
  • The role of the energy efficiency regulations on the French housing market.

In 2020 he was awarded with an ANR research grant to work on the monetary valuation of reducing risks to life and health. This project is motivated by the increasing need for economic tools enabling authorities to rank environmental and health related policies. Daniel teaches courses on empirical industrial organization, environmental economics, introductory econometrics, and discrete choice econometrics. He organizes LEDa’s internal and external research seminars since 2019 and assists Dauphine’s department of international affairs in the management and expansion of Latino America based partnerships since 2022.
