New LEO Research Faculty

Mary Kate And Adrienne Resized

The LEO team is growing! The addition of two new research faculty--Adrienne Sabety and Mary Kate Batistich--will greatly expand our capacity for research. 

Sabety, pictured above at left, focuses her research on health care and labor economics. She will come to LEO with a Ph.D. in Health Policy and Economics from Harvard University.    

Batistich, above at right, has research interests in labor economics and international economics. She will join the team with a Ph.D. in Economics from Purdue University. We are proud to welcome her home to Notre Dame, where she earned her undergraduate degree.

"We are very excited about Adrienne and Mary Kate joining LEO and the economics department," said Bill Evans, LEO co-founder and Keough Hesburgh Professor of Economics and Department Chair. "Both are highly trained economists, but even more, both care deeply about the mission of LEO and the University of Notre Dame. We could not be happier about recruiting such great talent and expertise to our team."
