Ardyn Nordstrom
Assistant Professor, Economist



I am an Assistant Professor at Carleton University's School of Public Policy and Administration. My research focuses on economic development, education, and gender equality, with a particular interest in how machine learning tools and text mining methods can be used to improve the design and evaluation of development projects and policies.

I am a member of the Canadian Women Economics Committee, and a member of the One Society Network, an interdisciplinary research institute linking economists and epidemiologists to better understand and manage pandemic threats in Canada. I recently completed my PhD in economics at Queen's University.

​Since 2017, I have complemented my academic research with my work at Limestone Analytics, where I am a Research Associate and managed the evaluation of a Girls’ Education Challenge project in Zimbabwe, along with other food security, education, and gender projects around the world.
