Professor Poole’s research and teaching interests fall at the intersection of international trade, labor economics, and development economics. With an emphasis on Brazil, her broad research agenda considers the effects of global integration on local labor markets. She also studies the role of labor institutions in influencing local adjustments to shocks and the implications of information transfer in trade and investment. Her research has been published in the Journal of Development Economics, the Journal of International Economics, and the Review of Economics and Statistics, and has been funded by the National Science Foundation. She recently served as Senior International Economist in President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers and has also served as a visiting scholar at the World Bank, among other institutions.
