Research

My research interests are in labour economics. I am interested in both theoretical and empirical aspects of labour market models. My recent research focuses on labour reallocation, the public-private pay gap, earnings dynamics and firing taxes. My ongoing research is on consumer search frictions and on household labour supply. Below is a list of my completed papers and work in progress (some to download here).
