Nivedhitha Subramanian

I am a PhD Candidate in the Economics Concentration at the Sanford School of Public Policy.  My research interests are in development economics and policy. My dissertation research focuses on gender and development economics, with a particular focus on women's labor supply.

Current Research Interests

My research interests are in development economics and policy.  In my dissertation, I use both a field experiment and causal inference methods on public use data to study questions related to gender and household decision-making in South Asia.  My main project studies the role of gender-related workplace attributes on women's labor supply decisions in Pakistan, and how perception of family job search advice impacts young women's labor supply decisions.  In addition, I study information updating about occupations through the job search process in this context, and the role of beliefs about occupations on women's occupational choice.  To inform and conduct my research, I have field experience in India and Pakistan.
