I am Saima Alam Samantha, a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Kansas. I am in the 2023-2024 job market.


My research focuses on applied microeconomics, specifically labor and gender economics. I am interested in how social norms, institutions, and policies affect women's and men's economic outcomes and decisions in different contexts.
