Welcome to my Homepage
I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in Economics at the University of Essex, UK. I am also the director of the Post-graduate Taught programmes at Essex.
I am affiliated to IZA as research fellow, to CESifo and CEPR as a research affiliate and to ISER as a research associate. I am also a member of the Search and Matching Research Group (SAM) .
My research focuses on understanding the effects of human capital, worker mobility and occupational switching on unemployment and wage inequality over the business cycle and in the long-run. I use search and matching theory and quantitative methods as primary tools to study these effects.
Here you will find copies of my papers and lecture notes.
