About the Speaker

Jorge Luis García


Jorge Luis García is a Ph.D Candidate at the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago, a Senior Research Assistant at the Center for the Economics of Human Development and member of the Early Childhood Interventions Network of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group. He is a labor microeconomist mainly interested in family economics, human capital, and socio-economic inequality. His research aims to understand how family investment early in the life of children and market structures determine skills, long-term socio-economic outcomes and cross-sectional inequality.


About the Workshop on Human Potential

The Workshop on Human Potential is one of the core intellectual activities of the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy. It is an interdisciplinary forum for graduate students, post docs, and faculty whose work concerns behavior, health, and well-being across the lifespan and the ways in which technology and public policy shape human potential and achievement. The workshop has active members in the areas of the social, behavioral, health, and policy sciences.

The Workshop on Human Potential alternates between two types of sessions. Not only do we regularly invite outside speakers for a traditional “workshop” presentation, but we also provide a forum for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students to present research-in-progress in order to receive critical and constructive feedback.
