Larry Howard is an associate professor in the Department of Economics at California State University, Fullerton. He joined the university in 2008 after receiving his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Houston. His peer-reviewed research has focused on evaluating policies affecting disadvantaged populations, investigating the determinants of state government spending, and understanding how the availability of food resources affects children’s dietary patterns, nutritional status, and performance in school. Recent studies include examining the role of remittances in determining physical growth of Honduran children, the efficacy of childhood immunization programs in India, and the design of Medicaid in the U.S. He teaches several courses in microeconomics for both undergraduate and graduate audiences. His courses provide students with an opportunity to learn the fundamental tools that are used around the world to study the decision making of consumers, producers, and governments and how they interact with one another in market settings.
