Alaa Abdelfattah

Welcome to my website!


I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of California, Davis. My primary research fields are labor economics and public economics with a focus on the equity implications of public policy and aggregate economic shocks.

My job market paper studies the effect of large firm entry on wage distribution and skill demand in local labor markets. This work is generously supported by the Institute for Humane Studies, Russell Sage Foundation and the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. The latest version of my JMP is available here.

I am on the 2023-24 Job Market.
