Rigissa Megalokonomou

​Senior Lecturer in Economics

What's new:

1) I recently joined the Editorial Board of the Journal of Population Economics as an Associate Editor,

2) Our new working paper on "Do Second Chances Pay Off? Evidence from a Natural Experiment with Low-Achieving Students"

I am a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics  at the University of Queensland, a Research Affiliate at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) and an Affiliate at the CESifo Research Network.

My research is in applied micro-economics, focusing on policy-relevant questions in education, migration and labor economics. 

I am currently working on understanding how to measure and what shapes teachers' gender biases and discrimination not only in education, but also in other environments, teachers' value added, teachers' human capital depreciation etc. Part of my research investigates the effects of student autonomy during a pandemic. To investigate those topics I have undertaken massive data collections.​ ​​
