Lahey at RAND on NIA Fellowship

November 12, 2009

Assistant Professor Joanna Lahey is spending the academic year as a visiting scholar at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, CA, supported by a fellowship from the National Institute on Aging (NIA). Lahey holds a Ph.D. in economics from MIT, and is widely known for her research on age discrimination and how age relates to labor market outcomes. She is an assistant professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

NIA, one of the 27 institutes and centers of the National Institutes of Health, has led the federal research program on all aspects of aging since 1974.  Originally focused on research relating to national security, the RAND Corporation has expanded its research agenda to a broad range of national policy issues in business, education, health, law, and science.

This year, Lahey’s work has appeared in several national publications, including the New York Times and U.S. News and World Report, as well as other media outlets.  She has also been asked to provide information to U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin for his work on the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
