Jessica Carrick-Hagenbarth

Jessica Carrick-Hagenbarth joined the Economics Department at Middlebury College as a visiting instructor in the Fall of 2015.  She is currently completing her dissertation at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She holds a B.A. in Political Economy and Spanish from The Evergreen State College and a M.A. in Economics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Jessica's research and teaching focus on development economics (with an emphasis on Latin America), microeconomics, and ethics in economics. Her dissertation examines a participatory development project in Northeastern Brazil using a mixed-methods approach to evaluate problems stemming from free riding, elite capture, patron-client relationships, project design and participant capabilities.

Jessica's research on ethics in economics with Professor Gerald Epstein from the University of Massachusetts Amherst centers on the disclosure of conflicts of interest and has gained national attention.
