Faculty & Research


Dear SP2 Community,

In addition to serving as an Associate Professor at SP2, Dr. Marinescu is a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. An economist by training, her primary focus is the labor market and how policies can shape employment, productivity, and economic security. Her research expertise includes wage determination, antitrust law for the labor market, universal basic income, unemployment insurance, the minimum wage, and employment contracts.

In her new role at the DOJ, Dr. Marinescu will be looking at the economy from the lens of the federal government with an opportunity to translate her economic and social policy expertise at the broadest national level. I am thrilled for Dr. Marinescu to take on this exciting challenge. I know that her deep knowledge of economics and social policy as well as her commitment to social justice, equity, and inclusion will be front and center.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Marinescu!
