Labor economics
 
Research Theme
My field of research is labor economics focusing on the formation and utilization of human capital. I have worked on the skill accumulation of self-employed workers, the effect of family background and academic performance, wage inequality, and the assessment of various labor market policies. I am also working on the human resource allocation within a firm using proprietary personnel data sets.
