Economics department presents Joe Tiao lecture featuring Kathryn Shaw of Stanford University

Submitted by Department of Economics

The College of Arts and Sciences' economics department welcomes Kathryn Shaw, professor of economics at Stanford University, for the Fall Joe Tiao Lecture at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, in Regnier Forum. 

The title of Shaw's talk is "Managing in the Age of AI." All faculty, students and members of the Manhattan community are welcome to attend this event. 

Shaw has been the Ernest C. Arbuckle Professor of Economics at Stanford University since 2003, and is a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. From 1981 to 2003, she was in the economics department at Carnegie Mellon University, where from 2002-2003 she held the Ford Distinguished Research Chair. She was a member of the Council of Economic Advisors from 1999-2001, and is also a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a research follow at the Institute for the Study of Labor. She received her doctorate in economics from Harvard in 1981. 

Her research interests are broadly in the area of personnel economics. Recently, her research has focused on the importance of management in understanding the productivity of workers. 

The Joe Tiao Lecture Series, initiated in 2006, enables the College of Arts and Sciences' economics department to bring two internationally acclaimed economists to campus each year. Each Tiao Lecturer presents two lectures at K-State: a public lecture on an economics issue of current interest and a more technical seminar in the department.
