Rigissa Megalokonomou

​Lecturer in Economics

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


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.​ ​​
