Sarah Th├ębaud (PhD Cornell, 2010) has long been interested in studying why gender inequalities persist in our modern economy.  Her research relies on a diverse array of methodological approaches, including experiments, large scale surveys, and in-depth interviews, to identify social psychological and macro-institutional sources of inequality. Her recent publications and current projects examine how factors such as cultural biases and social policies affect gender inequalities in entrepreneurial activity, families, online markets, science and higher education. Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Kauffman Foundation, among others, and has been featured by several national media outlets.
