Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Sarah H. Bana’s research is primarily focused on measurement of new tasks and new technologies, and their effect on the labor market.

Sarah’s research uses novel methods to measure skills, tasks, and technologies, with an emphasis on uncovering fine distinctions using big datasets. 

Her most recent work uses state-of-the-art natural language processing techniques to better characterize how jobs have changed over time.

Sarah has been published by the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management and the Sloan Management Review, and has spoken at several events, including the California State Assembly’s Rising Tide Summit on Economic Security. In 2019, she was awarded an honorable mention by the Upjohn Institute for her dissertation, “Three Essays on Vulnerable Workers.” 

Sarah received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and was a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy.
