Thank you for visiting!  I am a comparative education economist and serve as Chair and Professor in the Department of Administrative and Policy Studies at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education.  I also have a joint appointment in the Graduate School of Public & International Affairs, and a secondary appointment in the Department of Economics.

My recent research papers are on the social benefits of education, and education reform (particularly school choice and incentive-based reforms). With colleagues at the World Bank, I am conducting a series of studies on schooling and social mobility. 

I teach graduate courses on the economics of education, comparative education, and quantitative methods. Previously, I earned my PhD in Economics and Education at Columbia University. I am married to Nazia Farzin Shafiq, with whom I have three daughters, Airah, Manal, and Nazeeba.
