David Deming

I am a Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

I am the Director of the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy at HKS.

My research focuses on higher education, economic inequality, skills, technology and the future of the labor market. I currently serve as a coeditor at the AEJ: Applied, and I am a Principal Investigator (along with Raj Chetty and John Friedman) at the CLIMB Initiative, an organization that seeks to study and improve the role of higher education in social mobility. I recently won the David N. Kershaw Prize, which is awarded biannually to scholars who have made distinguished contributions to the field of public policy and management under the age of 40. I write a semi-regular column for the New York Times Economic View.
