Congratulations to Professor Ina Ganguli, who has been chosen by the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) to be one of its 2015-16 Scholars!

ISSR Scholars participate in a year-long seminar that helps them develop strong research grant proposals and are given opportunities to consult with nationally recognized experts about their proposals.
Ina Ganguli, assistant professor of economics, has written a grant proposal entitled “The Emergence of Gender Differences in Scientific Careers: New Data and Evidence on the Role of Family, Mentors and Collaborators.” Ganguli focuses on gender differences in the labor market, and will investigate the reasons for the underrepresentation of women in academic science.
