Francesca Foliano

In their research, Nagore and her co-authors analyse the selection of Fellows of the Econometric Society, one of the oldest and most prestigious international societies in the field. 

They conduct a parallel analysis of gender gaps in selection as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American Economic Association, as well as being awarded a Sloan Foundation Fellowship. 

They conclude by analysing several of the channels that may mediate the gender gap in peer recognition, including visibility, networking, and credit for co-authored work.
