Dr. Plancich received her BS in economics from the London School of Economics, University of London, and her PhD in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At MIT, Dr. Plancich taught undergraduate courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics.

Dr. Plancich is a member of the Securities and Mass Torts Practices at NERA. For the Securities Practice, she has analyzed materiality, loss causation, and damages estimates in securities class actions, involving accounting fraud allegations, public offerings, and mergers and acquisitions. She has also analyzed issues of class certification, market efficiency, and damages under ERISA. In the Mass Torts Practice, she has prepared forecasts of asbestos and other tort liabilities. These forecasts have been used for reserves on companies' financial statements, for insurance purchases, and in the context of both acquisitions and bankruptcies. Dr. Plancich also works in NERA's Labor Practice, analyzing issues related to discrimination, wrongful termination or injury, and wage and hour violations.  Her analyses frequently are used in expert testimony.

Dr. Plancich's graduate work was focused in the fields of labor economics and public finance, and her dissertation concentrated on issues of taxation for mutual funds. A section of her dissertation, "Mutual Fund Capital Gain Distributions and the Tax Reform Act of 1997," was published in the National Tax Journal in 2003.
