I’m currently a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. My current research involves analyzing Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) data and the effectiveness of a job training program in Baltimore, MD and I’m working with the great Jeff Leek. I received my Ph.D. in economics from the Graduate Center, CUNY in June 2017. I am in the job market this year and I’ll be available during the AEA 2019. You can contact me here or DM @ahdvnd.
My research interests are:
* Economics of Education (especially online education)
* Student behavior in MOOCs
* Economic Inequality
* Big Data and Causal Inference
* Computational Social Science
