About Magdalena

I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in Economics of Education, at Teachers College - Columbia University in New York City. My research interests relate to developing and improving causal inference methodologies 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? Generalization of a regression discontinuity design away from the cutoff”
  • “Biased Beliefs and the Dynamic Role of Information in College Choice” (with Claudia Allende)
  • “Impact of the Inclusion Policies on Socioeconomic Segregation in Chile: A differences-in-difference approach.”
