Improving Learning Outcomes in Sub-Saharan Africa

Owen Ozier is an Associate Professor of Economics at Williams College. He joined faculty after nine years in the World Bank’s Development Research Group. He received his M.Eng. and B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and in Brain and Cognitive Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California at Berkeley.  His work has been covered by The Economist and on National Public Radio; his peer-reviewed research has been published in the Review of Economic Studies, the Review of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Human Resources, and other economics journals. He has also published recent work in leading child development journals, including Developmental Science and Early Childhood Research Quarterly. His published and current research projects include studies in Kenya, Nigeria, and Rwanda. His work focuses on health, education, and economic decisions in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Presented as part of the spring 2021 Faculty Lecture Series. The series was founded in 1911 by Catherine Mariotti Pratt, the spouse of a faculty member who wanted to “relieve the tedium of long New England winters with an opportunity to hear Williams professors talk about issues that really mattered to them.” From these humble and lighthearted beginnings, the Faculty Lecture Series has grown to become an important forum for tenured professors to share their latest research with the larger intellectual community of the college.

The Faculty Lecture Series is organized by the faculty members of the Lecture Committee. The aim of the series is to present big ideas beyond disciplinary boundaries. The lectures will be offered on February 25, March 4, 11, 25 and April 1. All lectures will begin at 4:15 p.m.  The lectures are free and open to the public.
