In Brown’s dissertation, “Essays on Personnel Economics in Low-Income Countries,” she addresses the sorting and incentive effects of performance pay for teachers in Pakistan by running a field experiment in Pakistan where schools are randomized into performance pay or fixed pay contracts.
She will join the faculty on July 1, 2023 following a 2-year postdoctoral research position at the Becker Friedman Institute of Economics at the University of Chicago.
