About Magdalena

I am an Assistant Professor at the IROM department (Statistics Group), McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, and a research affiliate at Learning Collider and the Population Research Center at UT Austin. My research interests relate to developing and improving statistical methods for causal inference in observational and experimental studies. I also focus on relevant policy questions in education, such as socioeconomic segregation and school choice.

Some of the projects I am currently working on:

  • “How far is too far? Estimation of an Interval for Generalization of a Regression Discontinuity Design Away from the Cutoff” (Job Market Paper) image/svg+xml
  • “Biased Beliefs and the Dynamic Role of Information in College Choice” (with Claudia Allende) image/svg+xml
  • “Difference-in-Differences using Mixed-Integer Programming Matching.”
