About the speaker:

Valentina Duque's research examines topics related to human capital formation, health, and development. In particular, she studies the short- and long-term effects of early-life circumstances on individual's human capital, the role that community factors play in improving levels of health and well-being in both developing and developed countries, and the interaction between early-life conditions and later life human capital investments.

About CIERS:

The objective of the Causal Inference in Education Research Seminar (CIERS) is to engage students and faculty from across the university in conversations around education research using various research methodologies. 

This seminar provides a space for doctoral students and faculty from the School of Education, Ford School of Public Policy, and the Departments of Economics, Sociology, Statistics, and Political Science to discuss current research and receive feedback on works-in-progress. Discourse between these schools and departments creates a more complete community of education scholars, and provides a networking opportunity for students enrolled in a variety of academic programs who share common research interests. Open to PhD students and faculty engaged in causal inference in education research.
