Professor Lanning joined the department in 2010. He is a labor economist whose research combines theory and econometrics to explore discrimination in current and historical labor markets. His current research focuses on evaluating the impacts that different types of economic discrimination (e.g. hiring discrimination, wage discrimination, non-market discrimination) have on labor markets and workers, and how policy can best be targeted to reduce discrimination in labor markets. His previous research has explored the impacts of discrimination in search models, and the sources and costs of discrimination during Major League Baseball’s integration. Prior to joining the faculty at Bryn Mawr, he taught at Albion College and was a Faculty Associate in the Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research.
