Hudson earned her Ph.D. in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is a labor economist who studies recruiting and retention in the public sector. Her recent work analyzes teacher retention in hard-to-staff school districts and the effects of salary schedules on mid-career recruiting. Hudson also conducts randomized evaluations of financial aid programs that aim to improve college access and completion for low-income students. She works extensively with the Poverty Action Lab to promote the use of experiments in evaluating and improving public services.
