Background

Research Areas: Labor Economics and Personnel Economics

Dr. Dora Gicheva joined The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) faculty as an assistant professor in 2010 after completing her Ph.D. in Economics at Yale University. Her current research focus explores employer-employee relations and the career success of broad groups of workers, for example, young professionals or women. Aside from workplace relations, Dr. Gicheva examines topics related to the success of entrepreneurs. Here research interests include topics related to workplace practices that increase the level of mentoring or other types of non-monetary support.

Additionally, Dr. Gicheva has a strong interest in the ways in which students pay for higher education and how government policies related to higher education financing can impact educational outcomes.
