A bio:
William Doerner is a senior economist at the Federal Housing Finance Agency where his duties are split between policy and research.  His policy activities involve regular publication of house price reports and participating in interagency groups (mortgage modifications, property identifiers).  His research interests cover topics in housing, law and economics, mortgage finance, and property taxation.  Doerner's publications cross academic disciplines: a co-authored article in criminology was recognized by Emerald as one of the journal publisher's most impressive pieces in 2013.  His research has been covered by major news outlets (Wall Street Journal, HousingWire), podcasts (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta), trade associations (Mortgage Bankers Association, Appraisal Institute), and think tanks (Lincoln Institute of Land Policy).  Doerner has taught undergraduate courses in econometrics, land use regulations, and principles of economics; he has worked as an assistant to graduate courses in micro theory, econometrics, and limited dependent variable models.  His teaching effectiveness has been acknowledged by university and departmental awards.  Doerner has been employed at various levels of public service (national, state, and county governments) and as a consultant.  He received a Ph.D. and M.S. in economics from Florida State University and earned a B.S. in mathematics-economics and urban studies from Furman University.  In the interim, he served as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar in Guatemala and took postgraduate courses in development at the Universidad del Valle.  He speaks Spanish fluently and has traveled throughout Central America.
