Kevin Murphy's research focuses on the empirical analysis of inequality, unemployment, and relative wages; the economics of growth and development; and the economic value of improvements in health and longevity. Murphy was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2005 by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, becoming the first professor at a business school to win this designation. In 1997, Murphy received the John Bates Clark Medal from the American Economic Association, an award given once every two years to the most outstanding American economist under the age of 40.
