Biography:Stephanie Seguino is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Economics. A central issue that her research explores is the welfare effects of globalization. She has studied the interrelationship between output, growth, and income distribution, exploring how the distribution of income between men and women affects prospects for economic growth and development. Her most recent work has explored the effects of economic growth on gender equity in well-being in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as Asia. A second branch of her work explores the determinants of investment and the effect of capital mobility on productivity, wages, and growth. She has also worked on living wage issues, and has investigated the potential for labor standards to improve gender equity. Her work is published in a wide variety of journals, including Journal of Development Studies, Cambridge Journal of Economics, World Development, and Journal of Post-Keynesian Economics. She has also served as consultant to the World Bank, USAID, and the United Nations.
