Appointments Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy at Columbia University, 2011-2012
Anne McDaniel earned her PhD in Sociology at the Ohio State University in 2011. She was a postdoctoral research scholar at Columbia University's Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy from 2011-2012.

Dr. McDaniel's research focuses on gender, race, and class inequalities in higher education. Her research investigates the causes and consequences of women's growing advantage in college completion in the United States and throughout the world as well as women's continued underrepresentation in science, engineering, technology and math. Her research also focuses on the reasons for varying college completion rates across industrialized countries, the wage penalty or premium highly-educated women experience in elite professions, and how national attitudes towards gender equality affects educational outcomes for men and women.
