Welcome! My name is Stephan Lefebvre. I expect to earn a Ph.D. from American University in August 2020 with fields in stratification economics, applied microeconomics, and economics of education. I am spending the 2019-2020 academic year completing my dissertation as a pre-doctoral fellow in Ithaca College’s Diversity Scholars Program, where I teach one course per semester. Previously, I was an adjunct faculty member at Catholic University of America.

I am on the market this year and available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in San Diego.

My research is on wealth and racial inequality, using causal inference methods and insights from the interdisciplinary field of Latinx Studies.

Before graduate school, I worked as a Graduate Fellow at Oxfam America and as a research assistant for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR). I am on the Membership & Outreach Committee of the Association for Education Finance and Policy (AEFP) and I am a member of the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE), the American Society of Hispanic Economists, and the National Economics Association. I received an M.A. in economics from American University in 2018 and a B.A. from Swarthmore College in 2011.
