    Senior Producer of The Trident Room Podcast, Mike Wish. sits down and has a conversation with Marigee Bacolod. Maj Rob Wells, Alex W. Ryan and students of NPS.

    This episode was recorded on May 13, 2021.

    MARIGEE BACOLOD contributes to two key areas in labor economics: skills and its rewards in the labor market, and economics of education, including applications to the U.S. military. For instance, Marigee studies skill returns in local labor markets, the gender wage gap, teacher quality, distance education, and military manpower quality. Progress in these areas helps our understanding and promotion of multiple skill development and talent management. At NPS, Marigee teaches courses and supervises theses in the M.S. in Management and MBA programs. Prior to joining NPS in 2014, she was Assistant Professor of Economics at University of California, Irvine, and was Adjunct Faculty at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Marigee earned my Ph.D. in Economics from UCLA, from where she also received my M.A. and B.A. in Economics.
