Bio/Research

Rick joined the Department of Economics and the ILR school in 2011. He earned his BA in economics from Harvard University and his PhD in economics from Yale University. His research focuses on the potential tradeoffs between inequality of opportunity and allocative efficiency in the mechanisms by which workers are matched to firms and students and teachers are matched to schools. Methodologically, I specialize in using linked administrative data to examine the interplay between production functions and models of sorting in contexts where the productive inputs consist of heterogeneous individuals (e.g. different students, teachers, or workers).
