Dr. Mason Ameri studies disability and employment related to labor market discrimination.
As an example of his research, Dr. Ameri recently investigated disability access to Airbnb rentals using a randomized field experiment of 3,847 lodging requests. The study has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, NPR, Fortune, among others. Moreover, he submitted résumés and cover letters on behalf of fictitious applicants for 18,048 jobs in accounting, software development, and data-entry. These "correspondence" studies have been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Inc., Huffington Post, FastCompany, New York Magazine, Washington Post, BBC, PBS Newshour, and more. He was also invited to discuss best practices at a World Bank symposium during January 2016.
Dr. Ameri’s research has been published in premier academic journals, including ILR Review, British Journal of Industrial Relations, Social Science Quarterly, NBER Working Papers, and Election Law Journal.
