Her research focuses on political economy, comparative politics, education systems, labor market institutions, state capacity, applied econometrics, historical research methods, politics of policymaking in Latin America and the U.S. 

Motivated by her experience growing up in Argentina and by her prior work at the World Bank and the IDB, Paglayan’s research seeks to explain why some politicians but not others adopt public policies conducive to economic development. She focuses on understanding the political economy of education policy choices, given the importance of education for individual learning, poverty reduction, and economic growth.
