Jason Kerwin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. He specializes in the use of randomized field experiments to understand health and labor markets in sub-Saharan Africa. Jason's research topics fall into two broad areas. The first is studying how people form subjective expectations and how those beliefs affect their decisionmaking processes. The second is labor markets in rural Africa, broadly defined – from choices people make about their effort at work and how to spend their wages to their decisions about their own and their children's education.
Jason holds a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.
