Hello and welcome to my academic website! My name is Matthew Strathearn and I am Ph.D. Candidate at Carleton University located in Ottawa, Canada.
I am currently in the process of completing my Ph.D. in Economics. I would consider myself a theorist with a keen interest in game theory, microeconomic theory, and industrial organization. I am in the initial phases of writing my dissertation which will focus on competition policy.
I am originally an Ottawa native and completed both my BA (2012) and MA (2013) in Economics here at Carleton University. My industry career began in 2010 where I worked as a coop student for the Audit and Evaluation Branch at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. I held this position part-time for the remainder of my undergraduate education. In the summer of 2015, I moved to Agriculture and Agri-food Canada where I worked as a Visual Basic Programmer. In the fall of 2015 I began my career as a Regulatory Specialist at Bell Canada, one of Canada's largest telecommunications providers. In 2016, I made the decision to return to Carleton to complete my Ph.D.
