Paige Ouimet’s research agenda sits at the intersection of labor and finance. She is interested in in how decisions studied in finance impact employee stakeholders as well as how changes in the U.S. labor force impact corporate finance decisions.
She has several research projects looking at inequality and the role of firms. She is interested in income inequality as well as broader measures of inequality that reflect differences in non-wage benefits and other job characteristics across workers.
Dr. Ouimet also has researched employee share ownership plans (ESOP) and employee stock options and their impact on labor productivity, wages and turnover.
Her work has been published in the American Economic Review, Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies and Journal of Financial Economics.
She received her PhD and MBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and her BA from Dartmouth College.
