Mariacristina De Nardi elected fellow of the Econometric Society
Congratulations to Mariacristina De Nardi for being elected a Fellow of the Econometric Society. This is an extremely prestigious honor and she is among the only 12 economists working in the United States to be elected this year. (See this link for the full list, including worldwide.)
Mariacristina is the Thomas Sargent Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Minnesota. She is also a consultant at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and senior scholar at the Opportunity and Inclusive Growth Institute. Her research is remarkably broad, spanning public economics, labor economics, inequality, health, wealth, savings, entrepreneurship, social security, social insurance reform, and human capital. Her work is notable in the way it pushes the frontier at the intersection of micro and macroeconomics.
