Research summary

I am a labour economist interested in wage inequality, collective bargaining, firm dynamics and in the ways in which they interact. My job market paper explores the effects of industry-wide wage bargaining on firm entry, selection and optimal size and through these on aggregate output and employment. My other research explores i) the role of firms in driving the growth in earnings inequality, ii) the extent to which different sectors of the economy pay wage premiums and iii) the causes of the decline in collective wage bargaining.
