Susanna Loeb is the Barnett Family Professor of Education at Stanford University, faculty director of the Center for Education Policy Analysis, and a co-director of Policy Analysis for California Education. She specializes in the economics of education and the relationship between schools and federal, state and local policies.

She also studies school leadership and school finance, for example looking at how the structure of state finance systems affects the level and distribution of resources across schools.
