Biographical Abstract:


Maggie Switek joined University of Southern California as an Assistant Professor of the Practice of Economics in Fall of 2017.  Before that, Maggie worked for three years in Economic Consulting at Cornerstone Research.  During her time at Cornerstone Research, Maggie specialized in the areas of antitrust and intellectual property litigation working on several notable cases, such as the proposed merger of Aetna and Humana. 


Maggie completed her Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Southern California in May of 2014, and obtained her M.A. in Economics in 2010 at the same University. Prior to entering the M.A. and Ph.D. programs she worked as a Research Assistant on projects related to Quality of Life with Richard Easterlin at USC and with Mariano H. Rojas at FLACSO, Mexico.


Maggie’s research interests include life satisfaction, development, and applied microeconomics. In particular she has published work related to the effects of public social spending on well-being differences between rural and urban areas in Latin America, and to the effects of the recent rapid economic growth (and accompanying economic changes) on life satisfaction in China. She has also published research on the well-being changes associated with migration of young adults, as well as on the effects that changing oil prices exert on well-being of the population of oil exporting and oil importing countries.  Currently she is mostly interested in research related to job satisfaction and the effects of public spending on well-being.
