Danielle Edwards is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Annenberg Institute at Brown University. Her research is concerned with the problem that where students live can determine what educational opportunities they have and the potential for policy to alleviate these geographic inequities in access to effective schools and teachers. To date, her work has centered on two areas of K-12 education policy: teacher labor markets and school choice. She primarily uses individual-level panel data and econometric methods to describe relationships and estimate causal effects.
Danielle holds a Ph.D. in education policy with a specialization in economics of education from Michigan State University. She received a B.S. in economics and a B.A. in history from Stetson University. Prior to her doctoral studies, Danielle taught high school in New Orleans.
