About the Speaker
Dr. Arce-Trigatti received her PhD in economics from the University of Houston in 2014. Her research interests broadly encompass public economics and labor economics, with a specialized interest in the economics of education. Her current research focuses on the relationship between state-level education policy and student outcomes. She is also interested in researching the economics of innovation with respect to education, as well as policies related to higher education.
