Bio/Research

Jordan Matsudaira is a labor economist whose work addresses the effects of education, health, and welfare policies on the behavior and well-being of vulnerable populations. His research ranges from investigating the impact of bilingual education programs on the educational and economic outcomes of the children of immigrants, to the impact of unionization on teacher and student outcomes in charter schools, to the effects of emerging accountability efforts in higher education. He is also studying how to best measure the outputs of institutions of higher education, the impact of providing prospective students with institution performance information on college choice, and the functioning of the federal financial aid system. Jordan holds a Ph.D. in Economics and Public Policy from the University of Michigan, and was a Robert Wood Johnson Post-doctoral Fellow in Health Policy Research at University of California, Berkeley before coming to Cornell. From 2013 to 2015 he was on leave from Cornell on President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, serving as Chief Economist. In the Administration he worked on a variety of labor and education policies, and led the technical development of the College Scorecard.
