Manuela Collis works on questions that look at the influence of gender on decisions and outcomes in education and the labor market. For example, she and her co-authors provide evidence that clearly stated qualifications increase the number of qualified women in the applicant pool and that women update their beliefs about their ability in male-dominated tasks more conservatively and vice versa.
