Mohsen Javdani is an Associate Professor of economics at the University of British Columbia – Okanagan Campus. He is an applied econometrician with varied research interests that include economics of gender, economics of immigration and minorities, economics of education, and personnel economics. More recently, he has been also interested in combining experimental methods with empirical analysis to examine various aspects of the economics discipline, including different factors that influence views among economists and economics students. His movement across different research topics is the result of his continuous curiosity to answer questions that he finds interesting and important. However, an identifiable theme in his work is studying the mechanisms and processes that hinder plurality and produce inequality, injustice, exclusion, and marginalization.

Mohsen Javdani joined IZA as a Research Fellow in October 2019.
