Mariana Pimentel Tavares (M.)
I am a PhD candidate at the School of Business and Economics of Maastricht University (MILE department).
My PhD research in Economics has a special focus on Education. I mainly work with microdata, at student and question-student levels. My work leverages on paradata extracted from achievement tests, with the goal to answer questions on skill formation and persistent achievement gaps. My supervisors are Professor Lex Borghans and Ron Diris.
At SBE-UM I have the opportunity to teach undergraduate students in several topics, such as International Economic Relations and Economics&Sociology.
