Professor and Chair of Economics
Anna Aizer came to Brown and the PSTC in 2003 after a postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University's Center for Research on Child Wellbeing. She is a labor and health economist with interests in the area of child health and well-being.
Aizer has examined the impact of public programs on child health and well-being and the economic determinants and consequences of domestic violence. The focus of her current work is the intergenerational transmission of health and income.
Her research has been featured in Science (“The Intergenerational Transmission of Inequality: Maternal Disadvantage and Health at Birth”), American Economic Review (“The Long Term Impact of Cash Transfers to Poor Families”), and Quarterly Journal of Economics (“Juvenile Incarceration, Human Capital and Future Crime: Evidence from Randomly Assigned Judges”).
