Dr. Eva Dziadula is an Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Notre Dame and a fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, and the Pulte Institute for Global Development.
Dr. Dziadula specializes in teaching Notre Dame’s Principles of Microeconomics and Principles of Macroeconomics courses -- she also teaches Economics of Immigration, Health Economics, Economic Demography of China, and she supervises upper-level research projects and senior theses. Her own research focuses on citizenship among the foreign born in the United States, gender preference and assimilation of Asian immigrants, child labor in Nepal, and in the realm of behavioral economics on the role of social accountability and commitment devices in the academic success of college students.
Dr. Dziadula teaches at Campus in large part because she’s intimately familiar with the challenges of the two-year college experience. She immigrated to the US from the Czech Republic and began her college career at College of Lake County (a community college outside of Chicago) without a family support system in the US and little knowledge of the American higher education system. After transferring her credits to Lake Forest College to continue toward a BA, guidance from a few great professors helped her along the path to an MA and PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
When she’s not teaching or doing research, Dr. Dziadula is travelling with her husband, two sons, and pitbull mix rescues -- if their destination is within driving distance, they might be hitting the road in their RV that allows their rescues to travel along with them.
