Stephanie Thomas Teaching 

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Economics at Cornell University. I teach courses in microeconomics, labor economics and personnel economics. From August 2013 through June 2016, I also served as the Program Director of the ILR School's Institute for Compensation Studies, an interdisciplinary initiative that analyzes, teaches and communicates about monetary and non-monetary rewards from work.  

My past teaching experience includes microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory and econometrics at New York University.

I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from The New School for Social Research.

My Teaching: I teach courses in microeconomics, labor economics and personnel economics. I strive to present complex theoretical concepts in an intuituve manner, and to demonstrate the relevance of these concepts to real-world issues. In all of my classes, I incorporate a variety of active learning techniques encompassing a variety of learning styles. In 1998, I was awarded the NYU College of Arts & Sciences Outstanding Teaching Award.

My Research: My current research interests focus on the relationship between performance pay, worker motivation and productivity. Throughout my career, I have completed research on a variety of labor economics topics including wage determination, pay gaps and inqueality, and the quantitative analysis of employment discrimination.

My Extension and Outreach Activities: I regularly teach executive education and professional development programs on topics such as compensation, performance pay, decision making and risk management. I have taught a variety of short courses and multi-day training programs in the United States and abroad.

My University Service: In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I also serve on the Cornell University Football Academic Support Team (FAST). I'm proud to work with Coach Archer, his staff, and his players to provide support and guidance on economics courses and the Economics department in general. Go Big Red! CUFootball1
