Marie Hull is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of North Carolina - Greensboro. She earned a PhD in Economics from Duke University in 2015 and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, Mathematics, and Spanish from the University of Kansas in 2009.

Her research interests span labor economics, the economics of education, public economics, and applied econometrics. A broad theme in her work is how different family backgrounds lead to inequality in educational outcomes. Her dissertation examined the time-varying role of the family in student time use and achievement, the academic progress of Hispanic immigrants, and the mechanisms behind racial inequality in education and the labor market. She is particularly interested in using large, administrative data sets to understand the determinants of academic outcomes. Her more recent work evaluates technology initiatives in education and further explores the skill development of children of immigrants.

She joined IZA as a Research Affiliate in January 2015.
