Andreas FidjelandUniversity of Stavanger
I am PhD Candidate in economics at the University of Stavanger Business School. I am mainly interested in education policy, and in particular how it interacts with family background to influence motivation and learning—from early childhood into adulthood. The paper I am presenting for the EEA Congress is the result of a research stay at Stanford's Center for Education Policy Analysis. I expect to defend my dissertation the winter of 2021/2022 and plan to attend the job market concurrently.
