Daniel Scur's research focuses on organizations and how organizational practices affect productivity and labor outcomes across countries and industries. She studies organizational economics with a focus on emerging economies and developing countries. The research questions she is currently working on include why family firms adopt fewer structured management practices (and what to do about it), how school management and personnel policies affect teacher effort and student outcomes, how personnel management affects wages and other employee outcomes in manufacturing firms, and how female leadership influences organizational practices.

She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at MIT Sloan School of Management, working at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy (July 2018-2019). In July 2019 Daniel will be joining the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University as an Assistant Professor of Strategy.

In addition, she is Research Officer at the London School of Economics in the Centre for Economic Performance, and work on three large data collection initiatives: the World Management Survey, the Development WMS, and the Ownership Survey. She is a collaborator in the Productivity Partnership (a Canadian-led initiative), and a former research fellow from the Blavatnik School of Government in the RISE Programme.
