GPRL Coffee Chat with Prof. Nancy Qian

Monday, October 12 | 4:30 - 5:30 pm CDT | Zoom (RSVP to receive link)

The Global Poverty Research Lab and the Undergraduate Economics Society (UES) have partnered up to bring you a Coffee Chat with Prof. Nancy Qian.  She will describe how she got her start in development economics, and also present her recent work, “The Rise and Fall of Local Elections in China.”  The last 30 minutes are reserved for questions from the audience about any subject, as well as resources for how students can get involved in research.

Speaker Bio: Nancy Qian is the James J. O'Connor Professor at Kellogg MEDS and the founding director of China Lab, a part of Northwestern's Global Poverty Research Lab. Her research provides empirical evidence for a set of core questions in development economics from four sub-categories: demography and development, geography and development, institutions and development and culture and development.

Mission: The mission of GPRL Coffee Chats is to connect students to faculty (and other professionals) in an informal setting so they can learn more about a career in international development.
