Ruth Winecoff

I am a PhD candidate in Public Affairs at Indiana University Bloomington.

My primary research area is the municipal bond market, in addition to public finance and policy analysis topics more broadly.

My dissertation is a network analysis of the private sector financial intermediaries who assist state and local governments in financing capital projects.

Prior to my doctoral work, I completed a Master of Public Affairs at Indiana University Bloomington and a Bachelor of Economics at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
