Emily Weisburst

I am an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Luskin School of Public Affairs at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research focuses on topics in labor economics and public finance, including criminal justice and education.

I recently earned my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin. While in graduate school, I worked as a Staff Economist at the Council of Economic Advisers in the Executive Office of the President and as a research associate for the RAND Corporation on joint projects with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. I have also received the NAED Spencer Dissertation Fellowship to support my research on the impact of funding for police in public schools on student disciplinary outcomes and educational attainment in Texas.

My research interests include understanding factors that impact police decision-making and public trust in police. I am also interested in how interactions with the criminal justice system affect individuals, families and communities. A recent paper examines how much police discretion matters to law enforcement outcomes, after accounting for offense context. In this project, I find that the likelihood that an incident results in an arrest critically depends on the officer that shows up to respond to an offense reported through a police call for service.

He has reviewed state and federal cannabis legislation and regulations for municipal and state organizations. He has organized multiple community trainings and webinars on California cannabis policy post Prop 64 and contributed to the public discourse through the press. He served as an expert for the Arizona State University Citizen Initiative Review during their consideration of the impacts of legalization of cannabis. He was one of the leaders in the convening and program design effort to bring together the world’s top cannabis science and policy academics and practitioners for the 2016 Cannabis Science and Policy Summit – recruiting and moderating panels on federalism and cannabis policy, Mexican drug wars, and medical cannabis research. He oversaw the evaluation of medical cannabis and hemp policy for Jamaica as well as the market measurement of the medical, adult use, and illicit cannabis markets for the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board in 2015. His recent contributions include working with academics and scientists to develop a cannabis research agenda for the state of California, serving as a panelist to address progressive policy trends and project work such as survey and study design for profiling the cannabis market and its users throughout Canada.

The Science and Politics of Global Climate Change: A Guide to the Debate (with A.E. Dessler). 2nd ed. Cambridge University Press (2010). The second edition of Dessler and Parson’s acclaimed book provides an integrated treatment of the science, technology, economics, policy, and politics of climate change. Aimed at the educated non-specialist, and at courses in environmental policy or climate change, the book clearly lays out the scientific foundations of climate change, the issues in current policy debates, and the interactions between science and politics that make the climate change debate so contentious and confusing. This new edition is brought completely up to date to reflect the rapid movement of events related to climate change. In addition, all sections have been improved, in particular a more thorough primer on the basic science of climate change is included. The book also now integrates the discussion of contrarian claims with the discussion of current scientific knowledge; extends the discussion of cost and benefit estimates; and provides an improved glossary. Order from Cambridge University Press | Order from Amazon.com
