The Department of Economics will be hosting Hugh Macartney, assistant professor of economics at Duke University and a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His broad research interests are in applied microeconomics, with an emphasis on the formation of human capital and the role of incentives in the public sphere. His work uses both theoretical modeling and structural estimation to examine key aspects of the education production process that underlie student achievement, such as teacher effort and the match between teachers and students. The goal of this work is to evaluate and prescribe policy refinements in order to allocate education resources more efficiently.
