My name is Caterina Calsamiglia and I am an ICREA Research Professor at IPEG. I got my PhD from the Department of Economics at Yale University. My research focuses on market design and public policy design with a particular interest in education. My work includes theoretical, experimental and empirical analysis. In the recent years I have been leading a research initiative to help develop Pentabilities in life-long learning processes. To assist the Pentabilities initiative I co-founded Pentabilities app, a tool to track analyse the development of your socioemotional skills.
This year I am leading the design and implementation of 4 large-scale RCTs in Catalunya, Andalucía, Ceuta and Melilla. Three of them are implemented through Fundació Bofill and the program Suport Educatiu. The fourth through Fundesplai and the program Hedera.
WE ARE HIRING 2 MORE POSITIONS!
2 Research Assistant positions to work on tutoring programs in reading and math for primary school children. We are looking for people who can do more qualitative work in the field.
