Dr. Claudia Persico

assistant professor
Claudia Persico is an economics and neuroscience-oriented policy scholar with interests in inequality, education policy and early childhood health. Her research on school finance reform has recently been featured in the Quarterly Journal of Economics (“The Effects of School Spending on Educational and Economic Outcomes: Evidence From School Finance Reforms” with C. Kirabo Jackson and Rucker C. Johnson). Her current work examines the social and biological mechanisms underlying the relationships between poverty, the environment, and children’s cognitive development and health. In particular, much of her current research focuses on how prenatal exposure to environmental toxicants can contribute to long-term inequalities in child health, behavior and academic achievement.
