Sakshi Jain

Lecturer

Profile

Sakshi Jain has 5 years of experience in public policy analysis related to development and education economics, and using econometric methods to evaluate socioeconomic changes in Asia, and the United States. Her current research applies to inequality, and human capital accumulation, and their interactions with public policy. She is especially interested in exploring how public policy affects development issues in economies, through programs like conditional cash transfers, compulsory schooling, and environmental regulations. Her research agenda spans analyzing key issues relating to public policies implemented in both low and high-income countries, intra-household investment in human capital, understanding education gaps, gender and racial inequalities, and environmental protection. Before joining Brandeis, she taught at Franklin & Marshall College, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Temple University. Dr. Jain earned her BA from the Delhi University, her MA, MPhil in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University, and her Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Houston.
