My research focuses on applying experimental methods, both laboratory and field experiments, to study labor economics. I primarily explore the economic consequences of discrimination in the labor market. My research explores discrimination against many different marginalized communities. I have work that studies discrimination against:

  • LGBT Americans
  • Workers over the age of 40
  • Women in STEM fields



I am Ian Burn, a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California-Irvine in 2017. My fields of research are Labor Economics and Experimental Economics
