Silvia Griselda earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Melbourne in 2021. Her research interests are in the fields of education, labor, and human capital development, with a particular focus on gender. Her research investigates the determinants of human capital formation and the aspects that contribute to gender differences in educational and labor choices. In particular, she focuses on the determinants of female educational choices. Her main research investigates female underperformance in international assessments, in particular in Mathematics, and the policy that could help reduce the gender gap. Another strand of research focuses on female under-enrollment in STEM degrees and majors, by investigating the role of female comparative advantage in humanities disciplines to explain female lower enrolment in STEM disciplines
