Biographical details

Stefanie Schurer is an Associate Professor (with tenure) in the School of Economics at the University of Sydney, and she leads the Economics of Human Development research node at the Charles Perkins Centre. Her current projects explore the evolution of skills, preferences, and health over the lifecourse and the role that parents, public policy, and the medical care sector play in this process. She is involved in several linked administrative data projects in Australia financed through the National Health and Medical Research Council, evaluating, among others, the impact of early-life medical care, (poor) parenting or parenting interventions, and welfare reforms on children's skill development. Her work has been published in the Economic Journal, Journal of Health Economics, Journal of Applied Econometrics, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, and Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, among others. She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization; a University of Sydney SOAR Fellow and an ARC Discovery Early Career Fellow. Previously, she held positions at Victoria University of Wellington and University of Melbourne. She is a Visiting Scholar at The University of Chicago, a research affiliate of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group, and a Research Fellow at the IZA Bonn.
