Public Economics, Labor Economics, Applied Microeconomics


Tennecia Dacass

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Kansas State University. My fields are Public Economics, Labor Economics, Applied Microeconomics.

I have several years of teaching experience as the primary instructor at K-State and I was awarded the Department of Economics Graduate Teaching Award for excellence in undergraduate teaching in 2018.

My research focuses on issues associated with the criminal justice system and the labor market. My job market paper uses state variation in three strikes law to provide evidence of a causal link between increased sentence length and lower intergenerational income mobility.

I am on the market, and will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Atlanta.
