My CV on this link.
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.
