Lisa Schulkind joined the Belk College of Business in August 2014. Before joining the Belk College, Dr. Schulkind earned her Ph.D. in economics from the University of California at Davis and began her career as an assistant professor of economics at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Dr. Schulkind’s research focuses on understanding how parents’ decisions and circumstances affect their children and using this knowledge in order to make policy recommendations to improve intergenerational mobility. Her research on the effect of birth timing manipulation on infant health has been published in the Journal of Health Economics. Other current research projects examine the effect of information about one’s own academic ability on educational attainment, the health impacts of Women Infants and Children (WIC), the intergenerational transmission of health, and the economic returns to education for teenage mothers.
