Jennifer M. Walsh


I am a Ph.D. student in Business Economics at Harvard, where I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and Opportunity Insights.

I graduated from Harvard with an A.B. in Physics & Mathematics. Before starting my Ph.D., I was a management consultant at Bain & Company and a research assistant at the National Bureau of Economic Research for Professor Claudia Goldin. Before economics, I did research in computational biology.

My research studies agency frictions and their impacts on financial markets, using tools from public finance, industrial organization, and econometrics.
