Sara Moreira is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Strategy. Her general areas of interest are applied macroeconomics and firm dynamics, with an emphasis on the dynamics of business formation, growth, and productivity.
She is currently engaged in a variety of research projects that use granular data from large datasets covering an array of firms' operating decisions such as the number and occupational mix of their workers, the number and type of distinct products that they produce and sell, or advertising spending on each of those products. Her work explores these datasets and estimate macroeconomic equilibrium models that help better understand and quantify the role of specific economic mechanisms that shape firm dynamics and innovation activities.
Sara joined Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management in July 2016. She received a PhD in Economics from the University of Chicago.
