Economics of Gender
My current research has centered around explaining differences in publication rates among different groups of economists. I have just finished a paper that compares the publication record of male and female economists who received their PhD in 1985. In the near future I will begin comparing the publication record of the 1985 PhD class to the 1991 PhD class. In addition, I am completing research that examines the various factors that contribute to a student successfully completing the principles of economics courses.
