Jordan Matsudaira is a labor economist whose work addresses the effects of education, health, and welfare policies on the behavior and well-being of vulnerable populations. His current research ranges from investigating the impact of bilingual education programs on the educational and economic outcomes of the children of immigrants, to the impact of unionization on teacher and student outcomes in charter schools, to the effects of new teacher evaluation systems. In other efforts, he is examining the effects of increased staffing levels on patient outcomes in nursing homes, and the extent of monopsony power in the labor market for nurses. Jordan holds a Ph.D. in Economics and Public Policy from the University of Michigan, and was a Robert Wood Johnson Post-doctoral Fellow in Health Policy Research at University of California, Berkeley before coming to Cornell.
