Doctoral Candidate

Sadia Farzana

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Iowa and will be available for interviews for the 2021-2022 job market. My research focuses on how family, friends and school influence one's skill accumulation, educational attainment, habit acquisition and health. I am also interested in investigating public policies promoting education and health. I am an experienced teacher with over 8 years of college-level teaching (as Lecturer and as Graduate Teaching Assistant) under my belt.
