Salman A. Khan

Research Director, Crime and Education Lab (UChicago)

Hello, my name is Salman Khan. I am working as a Research Director at the Crime and Education Lab at the University of Chicago Urban Labs. I have previously completed a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois, Chicago and a Master's in Economics and Finance from CEMFI, Madrid.

I study the human capital investments of disadvantaged groups both in developing and developed countries. In my job market paper, I study the long-term impacts of expanding educational opportunities for girls in rural Pakistan. You can see a short (2 minute) video summarizing my job market paper here and read a blog about the paper here.
