Marwa AlFakhri


I am a PhD candidate in the economics concentration at the Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University.

My research interests include labor economics, family economics, and economic demography. I am particularly interested in implications of asymmetric information on decision making in different economic institutions such as the labor market and the family. In my job market paper, titled "Out of Sight, Not Out of Mind: Information, Efficiency, and the Extended Family", I explore information sharing in extended family networks and heterogeneity in efficiency of family resource allocations with respect to information provision.

I am on the 2021-2022 economics and public policy job market. I am available for interviews during APPAM, CEEE, ASSA, and throughout the job market season. For an up to date CV.
