Kevin Carney Profile Photo

I am a development economist studying political economy and behavioral economics. I will receive a PhD in Public Policy (Economics Track) from Harvard in 2022. I am on the 2021-22 job market.

My research uses field experiments to answer policy questions in developing countries. For example, in my job market paper, I study how social media in India influences voter knowledge, preferences, and behavior.

I hold a master's degree from the Paris School of Economics and a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, both in economics.
