Caitriona Logue's research interests are Applied Econometrics, Early Childhood Development, Economics of Skill Formation, Labour Economics, Development Economics, Field Experiments, Policy Evaluation.
She has a strong interest in early childhood policy. Past research focused on the econometric evaluation of an early childhood intervention called ‘Preparing for Life’. This programme was targeted at disadvantaged children and aimed to improve school readiness. I have examined the impact of early childhood programmes on measures of child development (both cognitive and non-cognitive measures). Logue is also currently examining the impact of free childcare policies on maternal labour supply.
Logue received a B.A. in Computer Science from Trinity College Dublin in 2006 and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from University College Dublin in 2009 and 2015 respectively.
