Claudia Allende is an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. She is an applied microeconomist who uses insights and empirical tools from Industrial Organization to study markets where public and private providers compete in an environment with substantial subsidies and regulation. The research projects focus on understanding the effects of public policies in equilibrium, taking into account frictions that are specific to industries like education, health care, and transportation. She collaborates with governments, NGOs, and private companies to build large data and rich sets from administrative records, collect additional data through surveys, and implement randomized control trials. He received her PhD in Economics and Education from Columbia University in 2020, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago from 2020 to 2021.
