Amanda Pallais

Amanda Pallais

Professor of Economics

Amanda Pallais a Professor of Economics at Harvard University.  Formerly, she was the Paul Sack Associate Professor of Political Economy and Social Studies. Her research focuses on the barriers preventing workers from achieving efficient employment outcomes and students from optimally investing in human capital. Her research has explored the extent to which the cost of developing a reputation acts as a barrier preventing workers from entering the labor market. It has shown how manager bias can depress the job performance of minorities, how small changes in college application fees can dramatically affect the college application choices of low-SES students, and how financial aid can improve college outcomes for low-income students. Pallais received her B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from the University of Virginia in 2006 and her Ph.D. in Economics from MIT in 2011.
