On January 31, 2020, Adriana Lleras-Muney will present “Do Youth Employment Programs Work? Evidence from the New Deal” as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2019-2020 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Adriana Lleras-Muney is a Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics at UCLA. She received her Ph.D. in economics from Columbia University and was an assistant professor of economics at Princeton University for seven years before moving to UCLA. Her research examines the relationships between socio-economic status and health, with a particular focus on education and income. Her most recent work investigates whether cash transfers to poor families improve poor children’s education, lifetime incomes and long term health. She is an associated editor for the Journal of Health Economics and she serves in the board editors of two other journals, Demography and the American Economic Journal-Economic Policy. She is also a permanent member of the Social Sciences and Population Studies Study Section at the National Institute of Health.
