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.

Dr. Arce-Trigatti will be presenting on the degree of product differentiation among charter schools as charter schools compete for students within a choice-based system. This work is joint with Era-NO colleagues, Doug Harris, Huriya Jabbar, and Jane Lincove.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
