Mustard's research focuses on microeconomic policy-related questions, especially law and economics, crime, casino gambling, lotteries, gun control, sentencing, labor economics, education, and merit-based aid. The National Science Foundation has funded his research examining the impacts of merit-based aid. Mustard's (and colleague Christopher Cornwell's) work in this area represents one of the country's most sustained and rigorous empirical examinations of these types of programs.
