Danielle Sanderson Edwards is a Ph.D. candidate in Education Policy with a specialization in Economics of Education. Her research is concerned with the problem that where students live can determine what educational opportunities they have and the potential for policy to alleviate these geographic inequities in access to effective schools and teachers. To date, her work has centered on two areas of K-12 education policy: school choice and teacher labor markets. She primarily uses individual-level panel data and econometric methods to describe relationships and estimate causal effects. Prior to her doctoral studies, Danielle taught Algebra II and Pre-Calculus at a high school in New Orleans. She received a B.S. in economics and a B.A. in history with a mathematics minor from Stetson University.
