Katerine Ramirez

PhD Candidate

Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics

at The Ohio State University

I am a PhD Candidate in Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at The Ohio State University (OSU).

I am currently on the job market and I am available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego, CA.

My research interests are in development economics, demography, and regional economics. My research lies at the intersection of gender, migration, and factors that affect labor market participation. Some of these factors are the opportunity cost of time, job-search frictions, and human capital investment. My adviser is Joyce Chen, with Mark Partridge and Abdoul Sam as part of my committee. You may read more about my research here (Job Market Paper here).

Before OSU, I worked in the financial sector as a credit risk analyst, and with non-profits and international organizations. I received a B.A. (Economics with Honors, Mathematics) and an MPA from Clark University. I also have an M.Sc. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of California at Davis.
