In Conversation with: SIEPR Young Scholars Kwabena Donkor & Katherine Wagner

Get to know SIEPR's Young Scholars at our next "In Conversation with" event featuring postdocs Kwabena Donkor and Katherine Wagner on Wednesday, November 4, from 3 - 4pm PT
Our Young Scholars program offers up to 10 emerging scholars a one- to two-year residence at SIEPR to advance their research agendas and interact and collaborate with our faculty. Our scholars are new or recent PhDs applying pioneering and rigorous analysis to policy-relevant topics in economics.
This small-group conversation with SIEPR Director Mark Duggan will offer the opportunity to learn more about SIEPR Young Scholars and to hear directly from Kwabena and Katherine about their research, ask questions, and engage in an open dialogue.
