Amanda (Mandy) Gaulke is currently an Assistant Professor of Economics. She received her bachelor’s degree from Lake Forest College, and her master’s degree and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

 

Amanda's research interests are public economics and labor economics, with a focus on health and education. One strand of her health research examines how a childhood health shock impacts both the child diagnosed and other family members. A new strand of research examines the role of administrative burdens and physician specialty in creating barriers to patients receiving treatment consistent with the standards of care. Her research related to education focuses on certificate programs, students who have interrupted college enrollments, and student loan repayment behavior.

 

Amanda has published in Journal of Health Economics, Labour Economics, Economics of Education Review, IZA World of Labor, and numerous medical journals including the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
