Modibo Sidibe, Kathleen Kaylor and G. Richard Wagoner, Jr. Assistant Professor

Modibo Sidibe

I am an applied microeconomist and my research focuses on the impact of mismatch on economic outcomes. I use model based empirical methods to understand and predict the behavior of agents under different policies.

I work at Duke University, in the Economics Department. I am also affiliated to the Center for Research in Economics and Statistics (CREST) in France. My recent projects involve the potential effect of a tuition free college in the US, school choice in Ghana, and a collective model of migration.

Professor Sidibe specializes in Structural Econometrics and his main focus of research is to develop models to understand how cities generate inequalities between individuals. Through his research, he has used job search models to analyze the migration decisions of agents and the efficiency of place based policies. Sidibe has also done work on hedonic methods, and panel data model with large parameter space.
