I am an applied economist from Silver Spring, Maryland. I will be graduating in Spring 2022 with a PhD in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin.

My research is focused on education policy, and my job market paper is about inference in clustered samples. Calculating standard errors, p-values, and confidence intervals is made more complicated by clustering. I provide a hypothesis test that rejects true hypotheses at the correct rate even in samples with few clusters, few treated clusters, cluster size outliers, and treatment intensity outliers.

In my work on primary and secondary education, I assess the impacts of disciplinary schools and examine the extent and correlates of tracking (within-school sorting of students into classes). Additionally, in the context of community colleges, I study several remedial education reforms.

My full name is Akiva Yonah Shuch Meiselman, I publish as Akiva Yonah Meiselman, and I am usually called Yonah. My pronouns are he/him.
