Leigh Wedenoja
Economics Ph.D. Candidate
Cornell University

I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at Cornell University on the Job market for the 2016/2017 school year. My fields of interest are labor, education, and behavioral economics, as well as policy analysis and demography. My current research and job market paper, "The Dynamics of High School Dropout,"  focus on modeling high school dropout behavior as the outcome of a dynamic process of human capital investment rather than as a single decision. 

I currently serve as the Administrator of the New York Federal Statistical Research Data Center at Cornell, part of the Center for Economic Studies at the U.S. Census Bureau and I am an AmeriCorps Alumna.

I will be available for meetings at the 2017 ASSA/AEA Meetings in Chicago.
