I am currently working with Edvard Larsen, a postdoc at the University of Oslo, on a project that investigates our knowledge of racial discrimination based on correspondence audit studies.

Do estimates of racial discrimination vary by the context studied? Gender? Period of recession? Researchers’ decisions about design characteristics?

Do race and class perceptions of names influence the outcomes found in correspondence audit studies. In other words, is our understanding of racial discrimination biased by the names we choose in correspondence audit studies?
