Deniz Sanin is an Economics Ph.D. Candidate at Georgetown University and a Pre-Doctoral Research Fellow in WAPPP. She is an applied microeconomist and her research focuses on development economics, labor economics, and political economy. Her research examines how formal institutions shape individual decision-making within the household primarily in developing but also in developed countries. In her research, she combines theory with rigorous empirical methods to answer policy-relevant questions. Her most recent work studies the impact of agricultural reforms on female wage employment, domestic violence, and human capital investment in children in Rwanda. As a WAPPP fellow, she looks forward to continuing this project. In her dissertation, she also investigates the impact of domestic violence laws on domestic violence in Rwanda and parental leave laws on female labor supply and fertility in Europe. She holds an M.A. in Economics from Duke University and a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Mathematics from Sabanci University in Istanbul, Turkey.
