Kathy Krynski joined Kenyon's Economics Department in 1986. Before that she taught at Pomona College and the University of Notre Dame. She has taught a broad array of applied economics courses including labor economics, the economics of women and work, and the economics of education as well as core courses in microeconomics and econometrics. She was trained as a labor economist and spent a year as a visiting economist at the Social Security Administration working on labor supply and retirement issues.
More recently, she has conducted joint research with David Harrington on the economic effects of state regulations on funeral markets and the earnings of funeral directors. They are also investigating whether native workers are being displaced due to the entry of Vietnamese into the market for manicurists and how the displacement rate is affected by differences in state regulations. She also served as Associate Provost from 1999-2002.
