Identifying Diverse Economists

Faculty Member: 

Proposal Description:

Too often in economics, opportunities are only available to individuals who have the right connections. Our aim is to work on ways of identifying a much broader swath of economists in one subfield, political economy, in order to connect outsiders inside and strengthen the field.

Requisite Skills and Qualifications:

The successful student will be experienced with Microsoft Excel, efficient at data entry tasks, and detail oriented. Experience with Stata, Python, and web scraping an asset.
