Molly Offer-Westort


I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in Susan Athey’s Golub Capital Social Impact Lab.

In July of 2021, I will join the Department of Political Science at The University of Chicago as an Assistant Professor.

I work on quantitative methodology for social science research, with a focus on causal inference and experimental design. My PhD is joint in Political Science and Statistics & Data Science, conferred by Yale University in 2019; I also hold a Masters in Statistics, also from Yale, and a Masters in Public Affairs, from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.

At Yale, I worked in collaborative research labs with Peter Aronow, Gregory Huber, and Forrest Crawford. In the summer of 2018, I interned with Facebook’s Core Data Science team.
