Nora Weber is a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology, whose work focuses on equity in education and labor. I am currently completing my dissertation.

Samples of my research can be found below. Methodologically, I take a multi-methods approach, using a combination of surveys, secondary data analysis, interviews, text analysis, and field and survey experiments to pursue my research agenda. I particularly enjoy exploring experimental design and previously served as Assistant Director of the Indiana University Sociology Lab.

My instructional experience includes graduate-level statistics, survey methods, and experimental design, and undergraduate Sociology of Education.

For further information, please see my resume, email me, or connect with me on LinkedIn.

Thank you!


Some of my recent research explores the effects of educational attainment on political ideology; shifts in higher education admissions policies during COVID-19; and how hiring managers assess applicant quality. I use multi-methods approaches, with an emphasis on experimental methods.
