Robert Garlick
I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the World Bank's Development Research Group. I will join Duke University's Department of Economics as an assistant professor in 2014.

I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2013 with a PhD in Economics and Public Policy and MAs in Economics and Statistics. I previously studied at the University of Cape Town.



My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics, econometrics and human capital.

I am actively working on projects in four areas: (i) peer effects and social interactions with a particular focus on education, (ii) education demand in developing countries, (iii) the relationship between education and entrepreneurship, and (iv) characterizing and understanding heterogeneous treatment effects.
