Assistant Professor, New York University

Alejandro Ganimian is an Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology and Economics at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. His research explores how school systems in developing countries can ensure that all children are able to acquire basic skills. This includes making sure that children are properly prepared for school, supporting teachers in their efforts to meet the needs of heterogeneous student groups, and helping school administrators use data to inform management practices. To that end, he conducts randomized field trials in Latin America and South Asia. He leverages his training in economics to estimate the impact of interventions and in psychometrics to develop measures of academic and social-emotional development.
