Dr. Agnieszka Kwapisz’ research focuses on using quantitative methods to understand and predict human behavior in order to achieve socially and economically desirable outcomes. Her work consists of three main research streams: entrepreneurship, assessment of learning, and alcohol taxation. She has explored effects of alcohol taxation on adverse effects of binge drinking such as drunk driving fatalities. Currently, her goal is to help entrepreneurs succeed in starting their businesses and to help universities improve student learning. She believes scientific analysis has a crucial role in realizing such goals. With a M.S. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Economics, her strength is in quantitative analysis as applied to problems relevant to economics and business. She is a certified Black Belt Six Sigma.
