Assistant Professor, Business, Economics and Public Policy


Davin Raiha joined the Business, Economics, and Public Policy group in July 2013, after completing his Ph.D at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. A native of Canada, he also holds a B.Com from the University of Toronto.

Professor Raiha's research is concerned with the intersections of business strategy and public policy. His work examines the various methods and strategies that firms utilize to influence public decision-makers and the reasons for their use. This research on the political economy of strategy also shows how firms respond to - and shape - different policy environments and political institutions. He also has research interests in corporate governance, exploring what factors determine the governance structures that firms employ.
