Wellesley College Professor Shurchkov’01 teaches macroeconomics and behavioral and experimental economics. She has also taught Global Economic Environment: Business Cycles and Financial Markets at Columbia Business School. Professor Shurchkov’s recent research focuses on using the experimental methodology to investigate issues in various types of discrimination in the labor market.  In particular, while on sabbatical at the Harvard Kennedy School, she explored gender differences in performance under competition and appearance-based discrimination.  Her new projects will include a broad range of topics from gender differences in leadership productivity to the influence of a country’s institutional background on the development of social norms.
