Research overview

Margaret uses data to answer questions and to test economic hypotheses. While education is her primary field of interest, she has also worked on projects in development economics and labour economics. In recent research, she has gathered and analysed data to better understand how education policies shape students’ school choices and performance, and how those choices determine important later outcomes such as occupations, wages, and career satisfaction.
