About the Event
Ilyana Kuziemko (bio), a professor of economics at Princeton University and serves as co-director of Princeton’s Griswold Center for Economic Policy Studies, will discuss recent research on intergenerational relative mobility in the United States.

Kuziemko rejoined the Princeton faculty after teaching at Columbia Business School from 2012-14, where she was the David W. Zalaznick Associate Professor of Business. From 2009-10, Kuziemko served as assistant secretary for economic policy at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where she worked primarily on the development and early implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Kuziemko has a wide range of research interests, including economic inequality, behavioral economics, investigating trends in redistributive preferences over time in the United States, the role of Civil Rights in changing political preferences, the U.S. criminal justice system, and the role of privatization in health insurance on health disparities.

She is also a faculty research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Kuziemko received her AB in economics from Harvard University, a second BA in mathematics from Oxford University (where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar), and a PhD in economics from Harvard University.
