Robert Garlick
I am an Assistant Professor in the Duke University Economics Department.

I previously worked as Postdoctoral Researcher in the World Bank's Development Research Group. I completed graduate work in economics, public policy, and statistics at the University of Michigan and undergraduate work at the University of Cape Town.

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

I am
currently working on peer and network effects in education, determinants of education investments by households, and transitions between education and the labor market. This work spans empirical and methodological topics, and includes primary data collection in and analysis of secondary data from Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa.
