We are excited to welcome Assistant Professor in Economics at The University of Chicago, Manasi Deshpande, for our ABF Speaker Series on Wednesday, April 11 from 12-1:30 p.m. Dr. Deshpande will present her talk, "Who is Screened Out? Application Costs and the Targeting of Disability Programs,” discussing the effects of application costs on the number and composition of #disability applicants and recipients when Social Security Administration field offices (which provide assistance filing disability applications) close.

Dr. Deshpande received her Ph.D. in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2015 and was honored as an emerging scholar in the field of public policy and management, receiving the 2015 Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management PhD Dissertation Award for her dissertation on the long-term effects of disability programs.
